According to local Taliban officials, a man shot and killed his own younger brother with a hunting rifle in Parwan province of northern Afghanistan as a result of a contentious inheritance dispute.

The Taliban office of the chief of police for Parwan province stated that the inheritance dispute that led to a fatal fratricide took place on Friday, August 26, in the Syagird district of the province.

According to sources in the province of Parwan, this young man went by the name of Jamshid and demanded that the inherited property be split evenly between him and his brother.

However, his older brother was opposed to it since he had grown avaricious and was triggered to kill his younger sibling out of a desire for money.

Sources say that Jamshid had just begun his job as a teacher in Kabul after just graduating from Parwan University where he had studied chemistry.

Domestic violence has increased since the Taliban seized power, while poverty and unemployment are at their greatest levels ever in Afghanistan. In turn, this has led to a rise in killings, suicides, and interpersonal disputes.
