Taliban tortured and killed midwife in Mazar-e-Sharif

They cut her into pieces with a knife, and finally fired 12 bullets.

"Nafisa worked at the Ali Chopan Clinic," said the source. Yesterday evening, she was on her way home from work with her sister’s child and a colleague. "The Taliban said why did you get in a car with a non-mahram?"

According to the latest information received by Sobh-e-Kabul newspaper, a young girl who was killed in Balkh province was first tortured by the Taliban and then shot dead.

Nafisa Balkhi was tortured and then killed by Taliban
Nafisa Balkhi, 23, was a midwife in Mazar-e-Sharif in North of Afghanistan. She was killed by Taliban after being tortured.

A source, who did not want to be named because of the sensitivity of the issue, said that the forces of the 7th Taliban constituency in Mazar-e-Sharif had killed Nafisa Balkhi for allegedly sitting in her colleague's car.

The source added that after a discussion between the two sides, the forces of the 7th security district of Mazar-e-Sharif arrested the midwife and her colleague and tortured them.

"At first she was severely tortured and flogged, then beaten again with a razor on his head and whole body, his flesh was cut off and one of his legs was amputated," he said. "They cut her into pieces with a knife, and finally fired 12 bullets."

The source also said that her colleague was also brutally killed by the Taliban and that only the young child who accompanied them survived. "Today, the Taliban in their seventh district took the bodies to a civilian hospital and told them to call their families. "The Taliban themselves said, 'We took them and killed them because they had no family ties.'

Meanwhile, forensic medicine at the civil hospital in Mazar-e-Sharif confirmed that the girl had been killed as a result of torture.

Taliban security officials have not yet commented.

However, the Taliban had previously ruled that women could not travel from one area to another without Mahram.
