Spokesperson for Ghor Governor did not name the arrested terrorist while talking to Azadi Radio but said he was heading Daesh group in this province.
Ahmad Mahmodi added that the terrorist is from Murghab District of neighboring Badghis province but he was arrested from Firozkoh, the provincial capital of Ghor province.
He was leading Taliban in northern part of Ghor but later joined Daesh, Mahmodi said. Khaama Press reported.
Before the emergence of Daesh about 16 months before, the hotspot of terrorists was southern part of the country but now they are apparently trying to establish its roots in western and northern parts of the country as well more likely to spill over to other countries.
Observing the situation, Turkmenistan has strengthened its border security by sending additional combat-ready forces and equipment to its border areas with Afghanistan.
