LASHKARGAH (Pajhwok): The Talibaninfo-icon have shot dead a policewoman in the Nawa district of southern Helmand province, officials said on Wednesday.

Bala Nasta, head of the counter-narcotics department at the provincial police headquarters, had gone along with her husband to Nawa four days back.

Aware of the policewoman’s trip to her father-in-law’s house, the militants gunned her down in Zarh Sahib area, the deputy police chief said.

Col. Guli Khan told Pajhwok Afghan News the victim’s body was brought from the Taliban-controlled district to Lashkargah, the provincial capital, at 3pm.

Bost Hospital officials confirmed receiving the policewoman’s corpse. The wounds indicated she had been killed some days back, they said.

At least four policewomen have been killed in Helmand, where 34 females are working for the force, over the past four years. The Taliban are yet to comment on the killing.
