Woman commits suicide in Jawzjan

Jan 08, 2015 - 14:46

SHIBERGHAN (Pajhwok): The body of a woman has been found in northern Jawzjan province--- a province that witnessed 13 womeninfo-icon deaths last year, an official said Thursday.

Col. Abdul Manan Raufi, police chief, told Pajhwok Afghan News the woman 37, was found who hanged herself to death in a village in Shiberghan, the provincial capital.

The motive behind her alleged suicide had yet to be ascertained, he said, adding that police was investigating the case. She was married to a farmer and is survived by a 10 year old child, Raufi added.

Najiba Quraishi, director women affairs, said majority of these cases were resulting from family feud. “First, members of a family argue on small issues and then it leads to deeper misunderstandings,” she remarked, alleging that the woman seemed to commit suicide due to her domestic problems.
