Taliban kill woman for wearing tight clothes in Afghanistan's Balkh province

A young woman was killed by the Taliban for wearing tight clothes in Afghanistan's Balkh province

A young woman was allegedly killed by the Taliban for wearing tight clothes and not being accompanied by a male relative in Afghanistan’s northern Balkh province.

“The woman was shot dead in the village of Samar Qand, which is controlled by Taliban," a report by Radio Azadi said in Afghanistan.

According to the police, the 21-year-old victim was identified as Nazanin. The woman was attacked when she left her house and was about to board a vehicle for Mazar-e-Sharif.

The police also said Nazanin was wearing a burqa (veil that covers the face and body) at the time of the attack.

Taliban, however, has denied accusations of killing the young woman.

Afghans living under Taliban control have said that the outfit has banned women from working outside.

Taliban has been actively occupying territories in Afghanistan ahead of the formal exit of US troops. On Sunday, the Taliban took control of parts of the capital of Kunduz province in northern Afghanistan.
