Taliban arrests ten individuals on charges of ‘moral corruption’ in Takhar

The Taliban authorities in northeastern Takhar province have arrested eight men and two women on charges of “moral corruption.”

Mubeen Safi, the spokesperson for the Taliban security command in Takhar, confirmed the arrests and said that the individuals were detained from Dashti Qala district and Taleqan City, the provincial capital of Takhar province.

The Taliban local spokesperson has said that the individuals have confessed to committing “moral corruption” and are currently in custody.

The arrests come amid a broader crackdown on what the Taliban call “moral corruption”. In recent months, the group has arrested dozens of people on charges of such offenses, including adultery, fornication, and homosexuality. The group has also publicly punished individuals accused of such offenses in various provinces of the country.
