History and Biodata

3. Biodata:

According to the National Directorate of Security (NDS), Sayedullah who was also known as Raees Khudaidad was one of the most dangerous, prominent and skilled Mafia leaders in Afghanistan. NDS said Raees Khudaidad was involved in major kidnap, murder and robbery cases across the country during the past few years, who was leading networks of criminal gangs in Kabul and other provinces. According to NDS, Khudaidad was living in Tajikistan, Pakistan and United Arab Emirates with different identities and was in the most wanted list of Tajikistan and Interpol.

One of the Kabul's most feared gangs was headed by Rais Khudaidad, who had safe haven with his men in Kabul's lawless Paghman district. Several other gangsters in Paghman were beyond the reach of the law "because these people have a lot of friends in the government."

Still in the custody of National Directorate of Security (NDS), Khudaidad charged with killings and robberies was arrested last year in September 2014 during a special operation of security forces in Kabul. Khudaidad said he will hire a private attorney soon to proceed his case. Although, the court has assigned an attorney, Javed Nasrat, to represent Khudaidad, he insists to hire a private lawyer for himself. According to NDS sources, Khudaidad will face his first trail in next few days.(20150112)

Raees Khudaidad, the most notorious mafia boss in Afghanistan's history, was hung to death at Pul-e-Charkhi prison on Saturday 28 Feb 2015.
