Identified as Abdul Halim, the convict was found guilty of repeatedly raping her daughter during the past 12 years.
The victim identified as 23-year-old Khatera was impregnated two times by her father and currently she is the guardian of two small children.
The first child is a 4-year-old girl while the second child was recently born and is only 3-month-old.
Khatera’s father was due to face a court hearing in the preliminary court of Kabul on Saturday but it was delayed due to unknown reasons.
In an interview with the Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty (RFE/RL) last week Khatera urged the authorities to try her father for repeatedly raping her during the past several years.
Khatera further added that her father was a cruel person who repeatedly raped her since she was only 12-year-old and she informed her relatives and people but no one paid attention to her plea.
The Afghanistan Independent Human Rights Commission strongly condemned the brutal rape of the young woman and called on the relevant authorities to immediately take actions against the perpetrator.
