Two young women die of gun injuries
Hasina, aged 20, who works for the vaccination department, was shot near her home on Saturday.
Dahom district police chief Col.Abdul Hameed told Pajhwok Afghan News that victim was a resident of Malakano area and was shifted to Baba Ali hospital in central Kapisa, but succumbed to her injuries.
Kapisa Civil Hospital Director Dr Mirza Muhammad Raaja also confirmed her death and said Hasina had been working for two years as a volunteer in the vaccination division of the district health department.
In a separate incident, a teenage girl was found dead in her home in Kunduz City, in the northern province of Kunduz.
“My daughter was cleaning her room when I heard a gunshot. As we rushed to the room, I found here covered with blood,” she the victim’s mother.
The girl was engaged to a police officer about 18 months ago.
“There was a gunshot in the room, so it was not clear whether she committed suicide or was shot accidently,” added the victim’s father.
Early investigations revealed the girl may have committed suicide due to family dispute, said police spokesman Syed Sarwar Husaini.
“The girl might have been engaged to the police officer by force or she may have killed herself due to family problems,” said Nadira Gayah, the director of women’s affairs.
