This comes as rights advocates expressed concerns regarding growing violence against women and children in Afghanistan.
Provincial women’s affairs chief Amina Hakimi said a 40 year old Afghan man raped an Afghan child in this province two days back.
Hakimi said the girl was raped by the Afghan man while she was playing and she is reported in critical health condition.
She also said the man who raped the 8 eight old Afghan girl managed to escape the area after committing the crime and has not been arrested yet.
According to Amina Hakimi a 6 months old Afghan child was tortured along with her mother by an Afghan man. She said parts of the ears of the Afghan child was cut and signs of torture was noted in the body of her mother as well.
She also said Afghan security forces have detained the man for torturing his family and is being questioned by Afghan police.
