Afghanistan's Interior Ministry said on Sunday that security forces tried to arrest Tooti, a land-grabber, not Abdul Salam Zaeef, a former Taliban official.

Earlier, Zaeef claimed that security forces surrounded his house last night, but he was not there.

In a statement, the Interior Ministry said that Salam’s house was also located in the operation area in Bagrami district.

It said that it was Tooti who was sought in the operation, not Zaeef.

The statement suggested that Tooti was not in his home. Two weapons and armed equipment were seized from the house.

Earlier, security forces arrested a brother of Tooti in an operation that seized also eight illegal weapons and a Hilux vehicle.
