Married girl hanged to death in Ghor

Oct 23, 2011 - 18:22

CHAGHCHARAN (PANinfo-icon): A young woman was allegedly hanged to death by her father-in-law in western Ghorinfo-icon province, officials said on Sunday.

The 22-year-old was found dead on the outskirts of Chaghcharan late on Saturday, deputy police chief, Col. Abdul Rashid Bashir, told Pajhwok Afghan News.

He said the girl's four in-laws had been arrested in connection with the murder. Her spouse was out of the province at the time of the killing, he said.

An area resident, who wished not to be named, said the victim had long been subjected to domestic violence by her in-laws and she was finally hanged.

Provincial Human Rights Commission Director Dr. Aqala Sharaf condemned the incident, saying efforts were being made to determine the cause.

Since the beginning of the year, she said, 24 cases of violence against womeninfo-icon had been registered with the commission. The cases included domestic violence and forced marriages, she concluded.
