Taliban kill woman over espionage charges in Takhar

May 01, 2016 - 15:18

TALOQAN (Pajhwok): The authorities in northern Takhar province on Sunday accused the Talibaninfo-icon militants of killing a woman for government spying.

Takhar Governor Yasin Zia told reporters here that the 25-year-old was taken away from her home, tried in a Taliban court and shot to death in Norkhel area of Darqad district last night.

“Her name was Dorkhu and she was the wife of a public order police officer. The Taliban took her with them last night and killed her,” the governor said.

But there has been no word from the Taliban about the incident.

A resident of the district, Ahmad, told Pajhwok Afghan News Dorkhu married the public order police officer about one and a half years ago.

He said the slain woman before her marriage had been engaged to another person and she had been unsuccessful in breaking the engagement through judicial organs.

“But she married the police officer and was living with him in Kunduz province. She had arrived at her paternal home in Darqad, when she was killed.”
