KABUL, Jan. 14 (Xinhua) -- Police in Afghanistan's capital Kabul city have arrested eight criminals including a murderer, reported the state-run Bakhtar news agency on Saturday.

The alleged killer, according to the state-controlled media outlet, who had murdered his wife two months ago, was located and captured from Police District 21 very recently. Another seven criminals, suspected of being involved in theft and robbery, were apprehended on Friday.

Similarly, police have arrested nine people on charge of involvement in criminal activities including drug trafficking from the northern Balkh province over the past week.

The Taliban-run caretaker administration has vowed to crack down on outlaws and criminal elements elsewhere in Afghanistan to stabilize peace and security in the war-torn country.
