Protesters demand arrest of killers

Dec 02, 2013 - 17:52

PUL-I-KHUMRI (PANinfo-icon): Hundreds of protesters held demonstration in northern Baghlan province on Monday, demanding the arrest of those involved in the killing of a boy and her girlfriend after they eloped one week back.

Earlier, the girl eloped with Saifullah, but they were caught by the people in the Ghori area on the outskirts of Pul-i-Khumri. Subsequently, the locals killed both of them.

The protesters, including brother of the slain girl staged protest in front of governor’s house and demanding immediate arrest of the killers.

Abdul Wahid, father of the slain boy told Pajhwok Afghan News his son had been murdered mercilessly, with three of the killers were still at large.

“If the murderers of my son are not arrested all of us will leave our area to protest against the government,” he added.

Mohammduallah, a protester, said father of the assassinated girl had refused to kill his daughter but cousin of the girl shot her dead.

He said father of the slain girl was still made hostage by the locals who was not allowed to leave the area or talk about the issue.
