3 detained in case of woman beaten to death
PUL-I-ALAM (Pajhwok): Three suspects have been detained in connection with the murder of a woman in central Logar province, an official said on Wednesday.
Logar crime branch police chief Waisuddin Talash told Pajhwok Afghan News the woman from Padkhab Shana locality of Pul-i-Alam, the provincial capital, died in a hospital in February after her husband severely beat her.
After her demise, her husband and his brothers and father fled into hiding to escape justice, he said.
“We were able to apprehend her husband, the father-in-law and a brother-in-law,” Talsh said, adding the detainees would be handed over to the judicial organs soon.
The victim’s father, Shirzad Gul, told Pajhwok Afghan News her daughter was 20-year-old at the time of her marriage.
Her spouse and in-laws used to subject her to extreme violence for four years into her marriage and she finally succumbed to the violence, the father said, urging the judicial organs to severely punish the detainees.
