50 #ISKP loyalists came to the intelligence directorate of #Nangarhar& joined the IEA (surrendered). They were pardoned for their past deeds, based on the decree of the Amirul Momineen.

Those surrendered, are 'suspected pro-ISKP' civilians.
According to the below tweet& video, as a result of the #Kunar governor& local tribal elders' efforts, 25 alleged #ISKP loyalists, realizing the legitimacy of the IEA, renounced their opposition& pledged allegiance to the officials of the Islamic Emirate.
According to the Taliban's #Kunar governor office, 28 more alleged #ISKP loyalists #surrendered to the TB government in the province.
Since August 2021, hundreds of alleged ISKP loyalists surrendered to the Taliban, mainly in the eastern Kunar& Nangarhar.

A new group, Tehreek-e-Taliban India (#TTI), announced its existence yesterday.
"Taliban is a common name& it has nothing to do with the Taliban in Afghanistan or Pakistan. The Indian Taliban is made up of Muslim scholars& created for peace in India & Kashmir," the group tweeted. Image
On the bases of human sympthey, the newly established movement in #India, in a tweet warned U.S. of consequences, if give #AFG money to the 9/11 victims:
"If Biden gave the #frozen_money of Afghanistan to the victims of 9/11. In India, Americans will face a strong TTI response." Image
While "Twitter has received request by Indian law enforcement agencies to shut down newly formed Tehreek-e-Taliban India (TTI) account", Pakistani media blamed Indian government for forming the new movement, TTI "to shield state terrorism against Muslims".

#Taliban spokesman said that 40 people were #arrested in #Balkh today for trying #to_fly_abroad #illegally.
"They were temporarily detained for questioning and later most of them were released. Only, the #women whose families (male family members) didn't come yet ...
...to take them home, are still in custody. Arrangements are made for them (for the women who are still in custody) in the women's detention center."
This is the first time that the Taliban officially confirmed that they barred people from going (illegally???) abroad.
It is more likely that the #Taliban have arrested& prevented from flying out, those Afghans who are in the #evacuation& rescue program of the international community. The Afghans, who are allegedly at risk of persecution from the TB& get evacuated without proper travel documents.
