KHOST CITY (Pajhwok): Security forces have arrested a man impersonating as a girl on Facebook and tricking another man into paying him 5.5 million afghanis in southeastern Khost province.

Khost police spokesman Mustaghfer Gurbaz told Pajhwok Afghan News that the imposter , Asad Mohammad, was arrested by security officials of the cyber-crimes police branch.
