KUNDUZ CITY (Pajhwok): A man killed his wife and another man over alleged affair in northern Kunduz province, while a woman was stabbed to death in Samangan province, officials said Sunday.

Waisuddin Talash, Kunduz crime branch police chief, told Pajhwok Afghan News that the slain man, Qari Nawroz, entered the house of another man, Qari Nimatullah, on Saturday night for adultery with his wife.

“After realizing their affair, Qari Nimatullah stabbed both her wife and the man to death,” he said.

Talsh quoted Nimatullah as telling police: “At midnight when I woke up, I did not find my wife on my side, I waited but she did not come, finally I went out of the room, I heard a voice from another room.”

“I was angry and took a knife, I attacked the two immediately after entering that room. It was dark and I killed both.” The police official said the real motive behind the double murder was yet known.

Elsewhere, a woman was killed by her brother-in-law in Samangan province, police spokesman Munir Rahimi told Pajhwok on Sunday.

The 30 years-old, Friba, a resident of Guzar Sia area of the first police district of the provincial capital, was stabbed to death on Saturday night, he said, adding initial investigation showed the incident resulted from domestic violence and poverty.

Rahimi said police had arrested husband of the slain woman, who was a vendor in Aibak city.

A doctor at the provincial civil hospital said the woman had sustained stab wounds on her face, head, chest, stomach and other parts of her body.

Khadija Husna, the provincial women’s affairs director, condemned the incident and said such crimes against the gender were a result of poverty, lack of awareness about women’s rights and consequences of the war in the country.

She said violence against women had increased and three to five women were daily subjected to violent acts in Samangan.
