KABUL: Abdul Hamid Khurasani, one of the notorious crime kingpins, has vowed to sew to his lips in protest to silence of the relevant authorities, who according to him have failed to act for his release.
A new video of Khurasani emerged online earlier on Friday, almost ten months after the security forces arrested him in Kabul.
Desperate for his release, Khurasani slammed the relevant authorities as well as his supporters for failing to take necessary measures for his release, claiming that his pleas have fallen on deaf ears.
Khurasani further added that he and his fellow inmates will have no other option than sewing their lips in protest against the injustice.
He went on to claim that he has not harmed any Afghan civilian, security personnel, including members of the Afghan army, police or intelligence.
The video of Khurasani emerged amid ongoing efforts to release thousands of the prisoners for the sake of the development of peace process and the outbreak of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19).
The Afghan government has released more than 300 prisoners of the Taliban group to help the peace process besides releasing many other prisoners in a bid to prevent the outbreak of COVID-19 disease in the prisons. (Khaama Press)
