A Muslim man and his wife attacked their daughter-in-law, beating her and burning her to death with hot iron rods. Here is what an Afghan report says:
A 17-year-old woman fell victim to domestic violence, after she was beaten by her mother-in-law and father-in-law, and burned to death. The incident occurred in Guzargahe Noor district of Baghlan province.
Khadija Yaqeen, head of Women’s Affairs in Baghlan told VOA that the girl was named Hoorjamal, and she was living with her in-laws after her husband travelled to Iran. According to Ms Yaqeen, Hoorjamal’s in-laws tortured her with hot iron rods, and she was finally killed under torture. She said that the incident had occurred the day before and one suspect had been arrested.
According to forensics, Hoorjamal was killed by torture and abuse.
According to the Baghlan police, the victim’s father-in-law had fled after the incident. Yaqeen expressed her concern, stating that the perpetrators had escaped due to the intervention of powerful figures.
