The Taliban detained Mohammad Razzaq Dawran, an influential tribal elder, in Charikar city of Parwan province on Sunday, local sources confirmed.
Dawran has been detained on charges of collaboration with the National Resistance Front (NRF), the sources stated.
Dawran's family called the accusations "baseless" and stressed that he has no connection with the resistance group and has never cooperated with the NRF.
Dawran’s relatives said that he has been imprisoned without any proof and they are worried about his health condition and fate.
Taliban have increased detention of locals on charges of collaboration with the National Resistance Front as clashes between the group and the resistance forces are growing in the northern provinces, particularly in Panjshir and Baghlan.
In a recent report, the United Nations Assistance Mission in Afghanistan (UNAMA) confirmed the torture, arrest, and killing of dozens of people by the Taliban over the 11 months.
