Father of rape-murder victim seeks justice

Father of rape-murder victim seeks justice

Jun 18, 2017 - 17:22

KUNDUZ CITY (Pajhwok): The father of a 7-year-old girl, who was killed after being sexually assaulted in the Khanabad district of northeastern Kunduz province, has sought justice from the government, an official said on Sunday.

Police chief Brig. Gen. Abdul Hameed said the 7-year-old girl sold milk in the district bazaar where she was kidnapped 10 days ago. Her dead body was found two days back in a stream.

He said police delivered the body to the forensic personnel and the findings showed the girl was sexually abused before being strangled to death.

He added three suspects -- including a man and his son -- have been arrested in connection with the incident. The detainees have confessed to their crime.

The victim’s father said: “My child was abducted on Jun 7 and last Friday night I saw a dream, in which my daughter told me she has been abused and killed. She said her body was put in a sack and thrown into a nearby stream.

“When I went to the stream, I found her dead in the bag,” the man said, adding he had informed police about the incident and three individuals had been detained as a result of investigations. He asked the government to punish the perpetrators.

One of the suspects said: “We were sitting in our house when the milk-selling girl knocked at the door, asking us to buy milk. We called the girl in and abused her and then we strangled her to death.”
