Abdul Mujib Mushafaq, who was appointed by the Taliban as the head of agriculture, irrigation, and livestock in Panjshir, has reportedly been arrested by the Taliban intelligence.

Sources informed Hasht-e Subh on Friday that Abdul Mujib was taken into custody in Kabul city five days ago by the Taliban intelligence on allegations of abusing official powers, financial and administrative corruption, and immorality crimes.

Contradictory reports suggest that Abdul Mujib may have been apprehended for colluding with ISKP, with explosives allegedly discovered in his possession at the time of his arrest.

Abdul Mujib Mushafaq hails from the Qarabagh district of Kabul and has served as the head of agriculture, irrigation, and livestock in Panjshir for the past year.

The Taliban have not made any official statement regarding this matter.
