The Afghan Intelligence operatives have arrested a group of six militants involved in major terrorist activities in western Herat province of Afghanistan.
The National Directorate of Security (NDS) in a statement said the militants were arrested during an operation conducted by the Special Forces of the Afghan Intelligence.
The other militants detained have been identified as Mushfiq, Wahidullah, Ghulam Mohammad, Baharuddin, and Syed Esa.
Herat is among the relatively calm provinces in western Afghanistan but the armed militant groups are active in some of its remote districts and often carry out insurgency activities.
