FAIZABAD (Pajhwok): The Talibaninfo-icon hanged a man after an open trial in northeastern Badakhshan for his allegedly killing his uncle, an official said on Monday.

The governor’s spokesman, Navid Farotan, told Pajhwok Afghan News the victim, Raza Shah, was hanged by the Taliban in Kori village of Tagab district days after he murdered his uncle.

The official said security forces were planning to launch an offensive against the rebels in the area to protect residents from their atrocities and kangaroo court trials.

Ahmad Navid Fida, Afghanistaninfo-icon Independent Human Rights Commission (AIHRC) head for Badakhshan, said a Taliban court had ordered the execution of Shah and demanded the government halt such executions.

He said trials and executions by Taliban were conducted against laws and international conventions, adding that every criminal should be tried in government court.

But Taliban in their website claimed Raza Shah was executed for the murder of his uncle after he was tried in presence of religious scholars and local people and all evidence proving his crime were presented.
