SHIBERGHAN (Pajhwok): Insurgents on Monday abducted five workers of Shiberghan municipality in northern Jawzjan province, police said on Monday.

Col. Abdul Hafiz Khashi, Jawzjan deputy police chief, said investigations had been launched to divulge who was behind the abduction.

He said the incident took place today at Pul-i-Khurasan locality in west of Shiberghan city, at a time when the workers were busy shifting wastes.

“We have started search operations to nab the perpetrators and the operations will continue until they are found,” he vowed.

Eng. Mohammad Hussain Saleh, Shiberghan mayor, told Pajhwok Afghan News the gunmen near Pul-i-Khurasan locality close to Dasht-i-Laili had kidnapped four municipality workers and one driver.

Nobody has claimed responsibility for the kidnapping so far.

Around two months back also, insurgents had abducted four drivers of a road construction company. They were later released following hectic efforts by local elders.
