Kabul Police Headquarters on Monday said it has irrefutable proof showing that AfghanSenator, Fauzia Sadat, is linked with a group of kidnappers.

Mohammad Zaher, Head of Criminal Investigation Department of Kabul Police, says a letter has been sent to the Afghan Senate House, but that some of the senators are supporting Mrs Sadat.

Head of the kidnapping group, Abdul Samad, is the brother of Fauzia Sadat and Mrs Sadat had previously used her influence to get him released from prison, according to Mr Zaher.

The first arrest took place four years ago during which Samad was wounded.Mr Zaher says that Senator Sadat's brother has been involved in many cases of kidnappings and armed thefts and that he has been imprisoned again.

"Abdul Samad son of Abdul Enan has been involved in many crimes. He made people that he kidnapped naked, mutilated their ears, filmed it and sent the videos to their families," Mr Zaher said.

After Abdul Samad was arrested, the police got a call from Senator Fauzia Sadat Samkanai, who rudely asked where Samad was, he said.

But Fauzia Sadat dismissed the statements made by Head of Criminal Investigation Department.

"I have no connection to the case, but it is true that he is my brother. It is not a crime if a sister talks to his brother. Kabul Police claims are groundless and unacceptable," Mrs Sadat said.

It comes as the Afghan Attorney General Office had also asked the Senate House to cooperate with the arrest of Senator Sadat, but Kabul Police said some Senators supported her.
