SHIBERGHAN (Pajhwok): A woman was killed after being kidnapped by unknown gunmen in Khaniqa district of northern Jawzjan province, an official said on Sunday.

Brig. Gen. Faqir Mohammad Jawzjani, the provincial police chief, told Pajhwok Afghan News the 32-year-old woman identified as Rabia was taken out of her home two days ago and her dead body was found on Sunday.

An investigation has been launched to know the cause of the death and arrest the killers, he said.

The district chief, Syed Fazal Shah Zafari, said they sent tribal elders to negotiate the release of the woman with her abductors, but they had already shot her dead.

Rabia’s husband was also killed a month ago by unidentified gunmen in the same area.

The Talibaninfo-icon have so far not commented about the incident.
