FEROZKOH/FAIZABAD (Pajhwok): A 17-year-old girl allegedly committed suicide by hanging in Ghorinfo-icon province while separately an insurgent killed his uncle and wounded a cousin in northeastern Badakhshan province, security officials said Monday.

Mohammad Iqbal Nizami, the Ghor governor’s spokesman, told Pajhwok Afghan News that the girl identified as Muzhgan hanged herself to death due to a family dispute in Saghar district of the province.

No one has been arrested so far in connection with the case, but security officials have launched their investigation, Nizami said.

Elsewhere, in Badakhshan province, a Talibaninfo-icon militant, who wanted to join the peace process, killed his uncle and a cousin in Saran village of the district late on Sunday shortly after 2am.

The militant had sought help from his uncle in switching sides but killed him and a cousin upon facing each others in Maghzar Mir locality.
