Man Murders Wife With Razor

A recent UN report said that a large number of cases of violence against women go ignored

By Milad Sakandari

A man has murdered his wife with a razor blade after prolonged domestic quarrels arising from financial difficulties, Kabul Police officials said Thursday.

"This heart-wrenching and tragic incident took place in Zone 7 of Kabul city. The people of the area informed us, and the police reached the area within a short time and arrested the man before he managed to escape," General Mohammad Zahir, chief of Kabul's Criminal Investigation Department, told TOLOnews.

The suspect said his alleged crime was rooted in domestic difficulties and poverty.

"I haven't had a good job. People harassed me, and my wife would send me to get food and groceries when I came home," said the man.

"So, I took her to the second floor and killed her with a razor blade."

A recent UN report said that a large number of cases of violence against women go ignored. The Afghanistan Independent Human Rights Commission recently reported a twofold increase in cases of violence against women in the country.
