Suhail Qureshi, 24, was allowed to return to Canada a month ago, after Afghan authorities found no evidence linking him to al-Qaeda or the Taliban, Afghan officials confirmed on Monday.

“The intelligence, police and security organs tried their best in order to find any evidence showing that he was planning to do something, but there was nothing found,” Afghan justice official Sakhi Abassi told CBC News.

Qureshi and his family have so far not spoken to the media about the arrest.

Qureshi was arrested at a Kabul bus station in May on suspicion of attending a militant training camp in Pakistan and was jailed in a Kabul prison.
