Kabul: The Taliban militants publicly executed a woman in northwestern Badghis province of Afghanistan after forcing her to divorce her husband.

A local official said the incident took place in Ab Kamari district late on Sunday night after the Taliban militants stormed into her father’s house in Maida Qul village, reports the Khaama Press.

 

The official said that the woman was forced to shift to her father’s house after Taliban militants forced her to divorce her husband whom she had married after divorcing her first husband.

The Taliban militants punished the woman after her first husband returned from Iran and lodged a complaint with them.

The militant group has not commented regarding the report so far.

This comes as numerous incidents of public execution by the Taliban have been reported during the recent months across the country.

Earlier in December, the Taliban militants hanged a Kabul Polytechnic University engineering student accusing him of spying for the government.
