It is said that the police of Nepal arrested and imprisoned Farooq Wardak, Omar Zakhilwal, and Wais Barmak for being drunk and assaulting a hotel waitress

Three Afghan ministers arrested for assault
Left to right: Farooq Wardak (Education Minister), Hazrat Omar Zakhilwal (Minister of Finance), and Wais Barmak (Minister of Rural Rehabilitation and Development) were all reportedly arrested and jailed in Nepal for assaulting a hotel waitress.

An authentic source at the Foreign Ministry of Afghanistan told our honorary correspondent this morning (Monday) that three government ministers were imprisoned for assaulting a Nepali woman.

Ghulam Farooq Wardak, the Education Minister, Hazrat Omar Zakhilwal, the Minister of Finance, and Wais Barmak, the Minister of Rural Rehabilitation and Development, were all sent by the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan to Nepal to accompany and encourage the national football team, but the Afghan national football team returned to Afghanistan without the three ministers.

It is said that the police of Nepal arrested and imprisoned Farooq Wardak, Omar Zakhilwal, and Wais Barmak for being drunk and assaulting a hotel waitress.

It is however possible that this action of the Nepalese government is because the loss it suffered at the hands of our national team players, but the truth shall come to light later.

Meanwhile Zalmai Rasool, the Foreign Minister of Afghanistan, left for Nepal on Monday, (September 16, 2013) to free these three ministers and bring them back to Afghanistan.
