Sep 21, 2015 - 23:56

SAR-I-PUL (Pajhwok): A woman, accused of adultery and sentenced to death by Talibaninfo-icon by stoning, has survived the punishment in northern Sar-i-Pul province, a public representative said on Monday.

The woman was accused of adultery a week ago and was stoned on Monday in a Taliban-controlled village Laghman, about 20 kilometres from Sar-i-Pul City, the provincial capital.

Mohammad Noor Rahmani, the provincial council chief, told Pajhwok Afghan News the woman, probably left for dead, survived the stoning and was currently in a nearby healthinfo-icon clinic.

Concerned over the incident that took place in front of a crowd, Rahmani said the government should pay more attention to insecure areas.

A government official, who wished to go unnamed, said the victim was in a critical condition and being treated at the village’s clinic, naming her as Khalzada.
