Polish commandos and Afghan anti-terrorist units have captured Mullah Saeed Rahman, high on the list of the most wanted insurgents in the eastern Ghazni province of Afghanistan.
“Saeed Rahman was arrested on the night of 10 and 11 January,” Polish armed forces spokesman Lt. Col. Miroslaw Ochyra told the Polska Zbrojna magazine.
“Rahman was completely surprised [by the commando raid] and did not resist,” the spokesman added.
The man is reportedly on the secretive JPEL, or Joint Prioritized Effects List of most-wanted insurgents and is allegedly responsible for kidnappings and attacks on coalition troops in the Deh Yak and Ghazni districts.
Mullah Rahman’s arrest comes days after the detention by Polish and Afghan forces of Mullah Abdul Kabir, thought to be responsible for a roadside attack on a NATO convoy in December 2011 in Ghazni, leaving six Polish soldiers dead, and another attack in August of that year, killing one Polish soldier.
