Eloping Baghlan pair shot to death

...police tried to mediate and rescue the pair, but tribal elders promised to surrender both victims

By Habibur Rahman Sherzai

Locals shot dead a girl and her boyfriend after they eloped in northern Baghlan province, officials said Saturday.

The girl eloped with Saifullah, but they were caught by the people in the Ghori area on the outskirts of Pul-i-Khumri, Abdullah, said a police commander, also the boy brother.

Speaking to Pajhwok Afghan News, Abdullah said his 22 years old brother had developed a relationship with the girl. The two wanted to tie the knot.

Javed Basharat, the provincial police spokesman, said police tried to mediate and rescue the pair, but tribal elders promised to surrender both victims. But they failed to do so.

Police had launched raids to detain those involved in the murder of the pair and put them behind bars, he concluded.
