Taliban find 3b Pakistani rupees at check posts snatched from Afghan forces

The Taliban have found 3 billion Pakistani rupees from check posts snatched from Afghan security forces along a Pak-Afghan border crossing, reported Geo News
A statement issued by the Afghan Taliban said that about 3 billion in Pakistani currency was found from the check posts of the Afghan forces in the Spin Boldak area of Kandahar, which was evacuated by the Afghan security forces.
The Taliban continued with their onslaught against the Afghanistan government Wednesday, as a spokesperson of the group said they had captured the important Spin Boldak border crossing with Pakistan.
“The (Taliban) Mujahideen have captured an important border town called Wesh in Kandahar,” Taliban spokesman, Zabihullah Mujahid, said in a statement.
“With this, the important road between (Spin) Boldak and Chaman and Kandahar customs has come under Mujahideen control.”
Pakistan security forces confirmed the Taliban had taken control of the crossing. The Afghan defence ministry said it was checking developments.
“The Taliban has taken control of the Afghan side of the Chaman-Spin Boldak border crossing,” the Pakistani security source told AFP on condition of anonymity.
