MAIMANA (Pajhwok): A 20-year-old married woman on Thursday committed suicide due to what police said domestic violence in the capital of northern Faryab province.

The woman, who got married two years ago and left behind a six-month-old child, took her own life in the morning, the provincial crime branch police chief, Col. Sarbiland, told Pajhwok Afghan News.

He said police had taken into custody the woman’s spouse who was being investigated.

Provincial Independent Human Rights Commission chief Syed Hafizullah Fitrat blamed the incident on widespread illiteracy, asking the judicial organs to punish the perpetrators.

The incident came two days after a pregnant womeninfo-icon committed suicide in the province.
