Local Taliban officials in the northern Afghan province of Faryab said that unidentified assailants shot a woman dead in the province’s Gurziwan district with Kalashnikov.

The event allegedly took place on Sunday night, November 20, in the Qeshr village of Faryab province’s Gurziwan district.

According to the Taliban’s spokesperson for the chief of police in Faryab province, Hameedullah Botshekan, the young woman was shot by unidentified armed men using a Kalashnikov when she was with her mother at his uncle’s place.

The Taliban official also stated that the young woman had just been accused of engaging in extramarital affairs; however, the Taliban’s primary court in the province of Faryab did not find her guilty, leading to her exoneration.

The husband of the victim, according to the Taliban investigations, recently returned from Iran, and he appeared to have cut ties with his wife.

In another case in the same province, a young girl committed suicide by ingesting rat poison as a result of domestic violence and family issues. In the Shirin Tagab district of Faryab, 22-year-old Hajar killed herself by eating poison.
