A man in Kabul beat his sister severely and then set her on fire because her fiancÚ had not given her enough money during the Eid celebrations.

The girl, who used the fake name Humaira, told the media that her fiancÚ had given her some money before Eid and when her brother found out about the small amount of money he had given her, he first beat her, then poured petrol on her and set her on fire.

The girl then jumped into a water tanker to put out the fire but her face and other body parts had already burned. She is currently admitted in a hospital. According to sources, the girl is in the tenth grade and her family is poor.

In another incident, on the second night of Eid, a female doctor was attacked with acid in Shahrake Arya area in Kabul.

Then a few days later, a girl and boy, who were said to be engaged, were dragged out of their car by some men and their car was set on fire.
