MAIMANA (Pajhwok): A man shot dead his mother-in-law and wounded his father-in-law in Pashtunkot district of northwestern Faryab province on Tuesday, an official said.

Mirwais Sayedzoi, the district’s administrative chief, told Pajhwok Afghan News  the incident happened in Jeji area around 30 kilometers away Maimana, the provincial capital, today.

He identified the assailant as Mohammad Amin, a father of two children. He said the incident took place in a remote area, where the son-in-law could not take his wife home until paying the complete bride price to his father-in-law.

He further said the couple married five years ago but the groom had been unable to pay the rest of bride price due to his poor economic situation.

He said the total bride price, locally called walwar, was 600,000 afghanis and the groom had only paid 200,000afs.

Mohammad Ismail Arbab, a resident of the area, told Pajhwok that the incident occurred after the girl’s father did not allow his daughter to go back home with her spouse.
