Local sources in the northwestern Afghan province of Herat reported that unidentified men shot a young man dead in the province’s Shindand district.

The sources familiar with the case told the media that the young man was gunned down in the Khwaja Naw village of Shindand district on Saturday, September 18.

The sources say that Ramazan was shot and killed in the Shindand district of Herat, despite the fact that neither he nor his family had any personal animosity against anyone.

The motive of the crime materialized in Herat province is yet to be determined.

The shooting of unidentified men that left a young man dead has not yet elicited a response from or formal statement from the Taliban security officials in Herat province.

Under the Taliban’s control, reports of suicide, domestic violence, honor killings, interpersonal animosity, and family strife have all recently significantly increased.

Despite the Taliban’s claims of security, crime rates have continued to be high and have recently even increased in several provinces.
