KABULinfo-icon (Pajhwok): A woman was killed on her wedding night in southwestern Nimroz province and a six-year-old boy was sexually abused in northern Jawzjan province, prompting rights activists to demand investigation and punishment for the perpetrators.

Jawzjan Police Chief Col. Abdul Wahid Wijdan told Pajhwok Afghan News the six-year-old boy was sexually assaulted by a young man in the Bala Murdyan district on Saturday morning.

“The victim’s father reported the incident this morning trough telephone but the area where the incident happened is under militants’ control and the perpetrators have sought refuge there,” he said.

Wijdan vowed that security forces would investigate the issue one way or the other and arrest the perpetrators.
