Badakhshan police Chief Ghulam Sakhi Ghafoori said “We arrested these five persons in cooperation with the National Directorate of Security (NDS) and handed them over to the Attorney General’s Office,”
Public Health Directorate of Badakhshan province says the arrested suspects do not have any documents to indicate that they are doctors or have received medical training and had entered Afghanistan illegally.
