AT Monitoring Desk-KABUL: A woman was found burnt to death inside her home in the Ekmalatil locality of Beshod district of eastern Nangarhar province, an official said on Saturday.
Provincial governor spokesman Attaullah Khogyani identified the deceased as Shiba, saying that motivation behind her killing was yet to clear.
However, he said that police detained the victim (Shiba’s) husband and father-in-law in connection of the killing.
It is not the first incident in the province as a few months ago a girl was set alight by her sister-in-law. The attacker was later sentenced to death.
Violence against women and girls are increasing, where the worst of that was when a 60 years old cleric married a six-year-old girl that caused a public outcry.
Sayed Abdul Karim, an imam at a mosque in the Obeh district of Herat province, was sentenced to seven years in prions after he married Gharib Gul three month ago. Her father, Mullah Abdul Qader, received a four-year term.
