KABUL -- The office of Afghanistan's Attorney General alleges that female Senator Fawzia Sadaat has links with a criminal group involved in kidnapping.

Deputy Attorney General Rahmatullo Nazari said the office had sent a letter to the senate on February 23 asking it to strip Sadaat of her immunity to pave the way for launching a criminal probe against her.

According to Nazari, prosecutors have obtained documents indicating Sadaat's association with a criminal group allegedly led by her brother, who is currently under arrest.

Sadaat denies the allegation.
