KABULinfo-icon (Pajhwok): A 25-year-old woman committed suicide by hanging herself with a headscarf in the capital Kabul, relatives said on Wednesday.

Bakht Zamina ended it all after seven months of wedding in the Kart-i-Naw neighbourhood in the limits of the 8th police district on Tuesday, her father Ali Gul said.

He added the motive behind her suicide was not known. His son-in-law had gone to Austria, Gul said, without blaming anyone.

Mohammad Hakim, Zamina’s brother-in-law, said: “I was in the mosqueinfo-icon when my brother called and informed me about the incident.”

He said Zamina shut her room and hanged herself with a headscarf from the roof. He added his brother planned to take his wife to Austria after two months.

The reason behind her suicide was yet to be ascertained, he said. Pajhwok tried to contact Kabul police for comment, but failed.
