KANDAHAR CITY (Pajhwok): Five policemen including a post commander have been arrested over allegedly gang-raping and torturing a 13-year-old boy who later died in hospital in southern Kandahar province, an official said Sunday.

The police officials were arrested after the victim’s father complained to the police headquarters in Kandahar City. The incident happened three days back in Kariz village of Dand district.

Wali Mohammad Askar, crime branch chief, told Pajhwok Afghan News that Ahmadullah, the father of the child, had complained that Kariz security check post’s commander Mullahinfo-icon Rozi and his four subordinates sexually abused his son and tortured him. The boy later died in hospital.

Askar said the accused policemen had been arrested and were being interrogated.

He said the child father had demanded justice in the case which would be referred to judicial organs soon.

Separately, a woman beheaded his husband in Kandahar City, the provincial capital, on Sunday and fled.

The incident took place in the jurisdiction of the 12th police district in, said police spokesman Jamal Nasir Barakzai.

He said it was not known as why the woman killed her spouse, but it seemed the incident resulted from domestic violence. He said police were investigating the incident.
