MAIMANA (Pajhwok): Murder and suicide cases involving womeninfo-icon have recorded a 27 percent increase during the first four months of the ongoing year in northwestern Faryab province, an official said Wednesday.

Zabihullah Jawad, the Independent Human Rights Commission head for Faryab, told Pajhwok Afghan News that 14 cases of women’s assassination had been registered with them during the first four months of current year.

He said the number women murder cases registered during the same period last year was 11, recording a 27 percent increase.

Jawad said the perpetrators of women murder should be identified, investigated and punished.

He said most of women murder and suicide cases happened in districts and areas under Talibaninfo-icon control where the rights body could not access such cases.

Murder of three young girls

Dr. Frangais, women forensic department head, told Pajhwok that they had received three bodies of young girls for post mortem investigation.

Relatives of deceased girls

Sayeed Shakrullah, brother of a 25-year-old girl who hanged herself to death at her father-i-law’s home, said his sister was married to his aunt’s son five years back and she was always beaten by her husband.

He said his sister visited her paternal home before returning and killing herself. She came to seek her father’s help in resolving her conflict with her spouse, but the father called it a matter between a wife and husband and said it would resolve with the passage of time.

“Then my sister returned to her husband’s home and hanged herself to death today,” the brother said.

Hayatullah, brother of a 13-year-old Jamila who finished her life by eating poison, said his sister was a mental patient and she ate poison on the way home from hospital.
