Kabul: National Directorate of Security (NDS) – Afghanistan’s intelligence agency – has arrested a would-be suicide bomber who says, he was gang-raped by Taliban commanders before sending him out for a suicide attack.

A statement issued today by NDS states that the victim of the gang-rape planned to carry out a suicide attack on the police headquarters of Bagrami District of Kabul, but he was arrested before he could reach to his target.

According to NDS statement rape cases are not unusual within the ranks of Taliban and Haqani network.

Bilal, the rape victim-turned suicide bomber has told NDS that he was gang-raped by Taliban commanders Muzamil, Hijrat alias Abuzar, Tahir and Hanzila in Bati Kot District of eastern Nangarhar province and then sent for a suicide attack.

NDS statements usually do not contain the exact date of the achievement, but they come after recent activities. Last year a group of Taliban gang-raped cows in Joram District of Badakhshan province.
