LASHKARGAH (Pajhwok): A man killed his wife and cut her body into pieces before dumping her remains in a well in the capital of southern Helmand province last night, police said on Sunday.

Second police district chief Col. Haji Gran told Pajhwok that the alleged killer had been arrested. He named the detainee as Zahir

A resident of the area said the woman had gone to Herat province with someone for three days and was murdered by her spouse on return home.  The couple has three children.

Human rights commission head in Helmand, Maroof Atifi, said such murders often resulted from forced marriages, poverty and lawlessness.
