KABUL: The Taliban on Monday announced that the group seized around $6 million and several gold bars at the residence of former Afghan Vice President Amrullah Saleh in the northern province of Panjshir.
According to the details, the Taliban troops “found this large amount of money and gold bars yesterday when they searched the residence of Amrullah Saleh in the province of Panjshir”, said member of the Culture Commission of the Taliban Mashal Afghan.
The money and gold were handed over to Taliban commander Mansour Agha, who leads the Taliban forces in that area of Panjshir, where Saleh has his home, he said.
In a short video released by the Taliban, the combatants can be seen counting several suitcases full of banknotes and pieces of gold in a room, where they then announce that they will give that money to their superiors so as not to betray the “martyrs”.
