Seven Afghan men were flogged and were given different prison terms in the supreme court of the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan after they confessed their crimes, Bakhtar News Agency reported.
The flogging that is also called (Hodood) is the first time that is being applied in Afghanistan since the Taliban’s takeover.
The seven men were accused of selling and consuming alcohol and also stealing cars.
The reports added, two of the criminals were lashed 35 rounds and were given six months prison terms each for stealing cars and consuming alcohol, the other couple was lashed 35 rounds for consuming alcohol, and the remaining three wrongdoers were lashed 35 rounds and given six months imprisonment each for selling and consuming alcohol.
It comes after the Deputy Chief of the spying agency (General Directorate of Intelligence) of the IEA announced that they will start applying “Hodood”.
“Hodood” is part of the punishment of the Sharia law that also includes stoning to death, hanging, and cutting hands.
