Kabul: At least 1 Kerala resident of Kerala was released from Bagram prison by the Taliban after becoming part of the Islamic State of Khorasan Province (ISKP) terrorist group. There are even unconfirmed reports that the Taliban have arrested two Pakistanis for trying to detonate an IED device outside the Turkmen embassy in Kabul on August 2.

According to reports from Afghanistan, Kabul is under the control of the Haqqani network because the Zadran Pashtuns have a strong influence on the Jalalabad-Kabul border with the tribes of Nangarhar province in Afghanistan, which borders Pakistan. ISKP is also active in Nangarhar province and has worked with the Haqqani network in the past.
One of the 1 Keralites is believed to have made contact with his home in the south, while the remaining 13 are still at large with the ISKP terrorist group in Kabul.
After the so-called Islamic State of Syria and the Levant captured Mosul in 2011, the vehicles of Keralites from Malappuram, Kasaragod and Kannur districts left India to join jihadist groups in the Middle East. Some of these families moved to Nangarhar province in Afghanistan to settle under ISKP.
India is concerned that the Taliban and their handlers will use these extremist Keralites to tarnish India’s image by engaging in terrorist activities in Afghanistan. There are very credible reports about the detention of two Pakistanis who tried to blow up outside the Turkmen embassy.
For obvious reasons, the Taliban has remained silent on the whole incident, but intelligence reports indicate that an improvised explosive device was recovered from the Pakistani nationals shortly after the August 2 bombing at Kabul airport.
The situation in Kabul, with the help of the Haqqani network and Pakistan, is very volatile, with the Taliban under pressure to form a 12-member council aimed at gaining global legitimacy with elements of the previous regime, but the Mullah Yaqub faction is reluctant.
The United States is expected to withdraw from the Islamic Emirate on August 311 before Afghanistan’s neighbors can decide on its relationship with the Taliban.
