Afghan intelligence agency personnel arrested 10 suspected militants within a day, the country's primary intelligence agency National Directorate of Security (NDS) said Sunday.
Ten suspected militants were arrested within the past 24 hours across Afghanistan and they have been shifted to concerned departments for questioning, the NDS said in a statement, adding one kidnapper was also captured over the period.
Without providing details, the statement also said that the NDS personnel freed one person from Taliban custody.
The NDS personnel have also launched three special operations elsewhere since early Saturday.
Afghan security forces have beefed up military operations against militants as the Taliban militants and Islamic State (IS) fighters are attempting to take territory and consolidate their positions ahead of winter in the mountainous country.
