25 Children ‘Rescued’ Before Being Smuggled to Pakistan For Insurgency Training

25 Children ‘Rescued’ Before Being Smuggled to Pakistan For Insurgency Training
An attempt to smuggle 25 children to Pakistan has been foiled, Afghan police said Monday.

The smuggling was detected in an area between Qarabagh and Ab Band districts in central-eastern Ghazni province on Sunday. The children’s ages ranged from 6 to 14.

Mustafa Mayar, the police chief of Ghazni province, said that the smugglers were taking the victims to Quetta of Pakistan for training on suicide attack.

He said that most of the children were orphans.

Four people were arrested in connection with the attempt.

Police said that the children will be handed over to their families and that the culprits will be prosecuted.

25 children rescued from being smuggled to Pakistan

 Police in southern Ghazni province on Monday claimed rescuing 25 children from being smuggled to Pakistan for what they alleged militancy training.

The boys, aged between eight and 15 years, were in two vans which the police intercepted on the Kabul-Kandahar highway in the limits of Qarabagh district, acting Ghazni police chief Col. Mustafa Mayar told a press conference here.

He said four persons had been arrested in connection with the incident. The detainees wanted to smuggle the children to Pakistan’s Quetta city, the capital of Balochistan province through southern Kandahar province.

He said families of the children had been told that the boys would be admitted to religious schools in Quetta.

“But these men wanted to train the children as suicide bombers,” alleged the police official, who claimed some of the children had been intoxicated.

The children belonged to families in Ghazni City, Deh Yak, Ab Band, Qarabagh and Andar districts, said Mayar, who declined to identify the detained kidnappers until investigation into the matter was completed.

One of the rescued children, Abadullah, told Pajhwok Afghan News that he was a resident of Bala Hesar area of Ghazni City. “I don’t know much but my family told me you are going to Pakistan for religious education.”

Abdullah said he was being taken to Pakistan with the consent of his family.

Another child, who did not provide his name, said he and his nephew, also among the rescued children, decided to go to Pakistan for religious education after the nephew lost interest in education in home town.

He said many families were being encouraged to send their children to Pakistan for religious education.

Afghan officials allege children smuggled to Pakistan in the name of religious education are being trained as terrorists and sent back to Afghanistan.
