Taliban deny arresting female protester

Kabul, Jan 22 (IANS): The Taliban-led government in Afghanistan has denied the forceful arrest of a female protester from her home, the media reported.

On Wednesday, Tamana Zaryab Paryani said in a video clip that Taliban fighters were knocking at the door and wanted to take her and her sisters, Khaama Press reported.

Citing witnesses, some western media reports claimed that the Taliban affiliates broke into the apartment and detained Paryani and her three sisters.
