5 detained for publicly punishing father, his daughter

Aug 15, 2015 - 19:19

KABUL (Pajhwok): Police in northern Sar-i-Pul province have arrested five suspected individuals for their alleged involvement of publicly beating a man and his daughter.

A statement from the Ministry of Interior (MoI) said on Saturday that police arrested five people for punishing father and his daughter following a false accusation of robbery leveled against them by the soothsayer in the Balkh Ab district.

The alleged father and his daughter were beaten in front of public in the Tughi village after a soothsayer approved their involvement in the robbery case, the statement added.

According to the MoI, individuals involved in the widely condemned trial of a father and his daughter had carried out a self style act which is considered a crime.
