GHAZNI CITY (Pajhwok): Local security officials on Sunday said an eight-member gang of criminals has been arrested in southern Ghazni province.

Provincial police chief, Brig. Gen. Aminullah Amarkhel, told Pajhwok Afghan News that three of the detainees were involved in filming naked scenes of businessmen and people in order to blackmail them.

The men had installed spy cameras in rooms where businessmen were sent to play with boys, he said. The criminals would look for people interested in having illicit relations with boys. The men had received thousands of US dollars from their victims, he said.

Amarkhel added a large number of pornographic video clips, computers, spy cameras, SIM cards, business cards, condoms and different types of sexual medicines had been seized from the detainees.

Sodomy scenes of some government officials had also been recorded by the men, but identities of the officials were unclear and investigations were underway, he said.

Video clips of other people having sex with boys were also found with the detainees, he said.

Mohammad Akram, a resident of Kandahar province, who owns a vehicle oil company in Ghazni, said first the men purchased some oil from him and then invited him to their area.

“When I went there, they guided me to a room where a boy was already there. The boy there requested me to have sex with him. The men recorded what happened in the room,” he said.

He said the men then contacted him over phone and asked him to pay $20,000 otherwise they would release the film on the internet.

Akram said he contacted Ghazni crime branch police. “Police recorded all telephonic conversations between me and the criminals and arrested them when they came for taking money on Saturday evening,” he added.

Amarkhel also said four drug smugglers and a militant involved in planting roadside bombs had been arrested in Ghazni. He said 2,000 different types of bullets were seized from the detainees.
