Domestic violence victim’s mother seeks justice in Kabul
TOLOnews.com: She said her daughter had complained to Baghlan’s human rights institutions over being subjected to torture and not receiving food by her husband. “Her husband was an army soldier. My daughter did not have a brother and no one took care of her. He was arrested by government but was jailed for two days. Then he was freed and killed my daughter,” said Bibi Naqli.

Mother of a young woman who was allegedly killed by her husband in Nahrin district in Baghlan province has come to Kabul to seek justice.

Bibi Nuqli said her son-in-law married to another girl and killed her daughter 20 days ago.

She said her daughter had complained to Baghlan’s human rights institutions over being subjected to torture and not receiving food by her husband.

“Her husband was an army soldier. My daughter did not have a brother and no one took care of her. He was arrested by government but was jailed for two days. Then he was freed and killed my daughter,” said Bibi Naqli.

She said her daughter had six children.

Bibi Nuqli is in Kabul with her three children.

Baghlan security officials refused to comment in this regard despite repeated contacts by TOLOnews.

“We urge judicial organizations to investigate the issue seriously and provide justice to us,” said Khadija Yaqeen, head of Baghlan women’s affairs department.

The Attorney General’s Office vowed to probe this case and similar case received from Baghlan last week.

“In relation to this case, our colleagues in Baghlan appeal attorney have taken actions. Also the suspects’ arrest order was not only issued to security forces in Baghlan, but it was also shared with the interior ministry and border provinces to arrest the suspect,” said Jamshid Rasuli, spokesman for the Attorney General’s Office.

Government figures show that six cases of violence against women have occurred in Baghlan in the past six months.
