A top military commander in the northern province of Balkh said on Thursday that security forces have arrested a man who allegedly posed as a representative of the Afghanistan National Security Council (NSC).
An investigation has been launched to determine the motive and identity of the man, said General Mohmand Katawazi, the commander of 209 Shaheen Army Corps.
Security forces detained the man at Maulana Jalaluddin Balkhi airport in the provincial capital Mazar-e-Sharif.
The imposter said during a preliminary interrogation he had met a number of local officials in Baghlan where he praised them for their outstanding performance.
