KUNDUZ CITY (Pajhwok): Local officials on Tuesday said a man who attacked relatives with acid in northeastern Kunduz province has been arrested six years after his disappearance.

Deputy police chief, Col. Mohammad Masoom Hashimi, told Pajhwok Afghan News the man, aided by six brothers, attacked four members of a family, including three girls and their mother.

He said four brothers of the convict had been arrested immediately after the attack in Belkol area of the provincial capital about six years ago.They are currently serving their jail terms in the Pul-i-Charkhi prison.

Two other brothers, who were complicit in the attack, are still at large. “The main convict, who was trying to flee to Kabulinfo-icon, was arrested on Monday afternoon,” the police officer said.

Mumtaz, father of the victims, asked the government to punish the criminals forthwith. “The man arrested tried to engage my daughter forcibly, but we rejected his proposal because he was a militiaman.”

After the rejection of his proposal, the man entered to his house one night along with his brothers and sprayed acid on his three daughters and wife, Mumtaz claimed.

“I was also tied and beaten up by the persons,” he said, adding the harm resulting from the attack on her daughters and wife was still visible on their faces and hands.
