“I congratulate @NDSAfghanistan & my brother Director Zia Seraj for capturing ISIS-K leader Aslam Faroqi. He is a Pakistani national … I am sure he is already singing & will sing more to the dismay of his patrons in & out … Make him talk,” Saleh posted on Twitter.

The arrest comes after the ISKP claimed responsibility for the attack on a Sikh Gurdwara in Kabul where 27 people were killed. As per experts, the foremost target of ISKP was the Indian Embassy in Kabul as terror groups wanted to derail India-Afghan ties and eliminate any Indian presence in the country.

The ISIS affiliate in Afghanistan initially numbered just a few dozen fighters, mainly comprising fighters from the Pakistani and disgruntled Afghan Taliban. The ISIS is seen as an even greater threat than the Taliban because of its advanced military capabilities and radical ideology, far more dangerous than the Taliban.
