The group also claimed responsibility for the assassination of a former Taliban minister, Mullah Arsala Rahmani in May 2012. After the Dadullah Front claimed responsibility for it, the Taliban responded that there was no such organization affiliated with the Taliban, and suggested that the Dadullah Front had actually been created by Afghan intelligence. Zabiullah Mujahid, a spokesman for the Taliban, said the attacks claimed by the Dadullah Group were really the work of one man.
NDS announced on May 19, 2012 that it had arrested three members of the front in Kabul. The alleged members, who are in custody, were reportedly in possession of several suicide vests.
