Two senior security officials are on the run after raping a young woman in central Bamyan province of Afghanistan.

Provincial Police Chief Mohammad Sadiq Muradi has confirmed that a young woman has filed a complaint against two security officials, alleging that the men rape her during the second day of Eid.

Muradi further added that the woman accused Mohammad Salim, the battalion commander of Bamyan police headquarters and Nasir Baloch, the recruitment commander of Bamyan Police for raping her.

Furthermore, Muradi said the woman has alleged that the two security officials raped her in the guesthouse of Bamyan Police headquarters on the second day of Eid.

He also added that the two accused officials are on the run and their mobile phones are also not working.

Meanwhile, Muradi said the provincial government has tasked a delegation to launch an investigation into the incident.

This is not the first time senior Afghan government officials are being accused of sexual abuse and harassment. 

The provincial government suspended the district administrative chief of Wakhan district a while ago after he was accused of raping a foreign woman.
