MAIMANA (Pajhwok): A woman and a minor child have been found dead under mysterious circumstances in northern Faryab province, where another woman was electrocuted, an official said on Wednesday.

Both the incidents took place in Khawaja Sabzposh district, the district administrative chief, Abdullah Masomi, said.

He said the two bodies were found on Tuesday, days after they had been killed in Zindani area. The area is under Taliban control.

A local Taliban commander Haji Amin said his men had seen the bodies. The woman was about 25 years old and the baby child some six months old.

Amin said he had no idea about the circumstances leading to the gruesome murder, but they were investigating.

Separately, a 25-year-old woman was killed after being electrocuted in Baghisi village of Khawaja Sabzposh district, the district chief said.
