Woman killed by husband for giving birth to another daughter

Kabul police said on Saturday that a woman from the Yaka Toot area in the capital was killed by her husband after giving birth to a baby girl.

Police said the woman was killed on Friday in PD9 after she gave birth to the couple’s second daughter.

According to police, the husband and his family members fled the area but efforts are underway to track him down and arrest him.

Neighbors meanwhile said Feraidon had also been involved in several other crimes recently.

The murder of the women for failing to give birth to a boy has prompted an outcry among women’s rights advocates and the Afghanistan Independent Human Rights Commission (AIHRC) stated that the act is indicative of the high levels of domestic violence and violence against women in Afghanistan.
