Officials in Afghanistan are scratching their heads in bewilderment after discovering that an unidentified man may have collected a treasure trove of sensitive information from security and intelligence offices throughout Afghanistan's southern Kandahar Province after impersonating a ranking member of Afghanistan's parliament.

Bismallah Afghanmal, a Kandahar representative to Afghanistan's upper house of parliament, told RFE/RL's Radio Free Afghanistan on February 15 that a man identifying himself as Mohammad Asif Sarhadi, a member of Afghanistan's upper house of parliament from Ghor Province, met with the governor of Kandahar Province, Tooryalai Wesa, earlier this month.
