A 50-year-old woman was fatally stabbed by unidentified men in her own house, according to Taliban security authorities in the central Afghan province of Kapisa.

The event took place this morning, Sunday, 17th July, in the Hessa Dowom Kohistan district in Kapisa province, according to Abdul Fatah Fayez, spokesman for the Taliban police chief in Kapisa.

According to a police spokesperson, the victim, Anis Gul, was fatally wounded and died while being taken to the hospital after being stabbed in her home by the unidentified men.

While stating that no one has been apprehended in connection with the case and that the crime’s motive is still under investigation, the police in the province of Kapisa inform the public that an investigation into the matter is still ongoing.

Despite the Taliban’s assurances of security, inexplicable murders and other crimes persist in several provinces.
