3 kidnap-slaying convicts executed in Kabul

3 kidnap-slaying convicts executed in Kabul

Jan 28, 2018 - 16:56

KABUL (Pajhwok): Three men involved in kidnapping and killing a 12 years old boy, Abasin, were executed at the Pul-i-Charkhi prison in the eastern outskirts of Kabul on Sunday.

A statement from the General Directorate of Prisons and Detention Centers said the death penalty had been upheld by all three courts and approved by the president.

The penalty was enforced in the presence of representatives of judicial organs on Sunday morning. The convicts were identified as Mohammad Arif, Shahin and Dadan Lawang, all residents of Paktia province.

Abasin had been kidnapped from the Karta-i-Naw area of Kabul in February 2016. Before killing the boy, the captors cut off a finger of the boy to force his family into paying ransom.

The victim’s body was found in the Khak-i-Jabbar district of Kabul in April 2016.
