The Taliban stormed and searched house of a former policewoman in Kabul, on Wednesday, September 29, and whipped her and her children, she told Rukhshana Media.
Fatima Ahmadi, a former policewoman said, the Taliban has searched her house for a gun she didn’t have and lashed her and her children. “They hold a dagger on the neck of my 9-year-old son and threatened me, ‘if you raise your voice, we will kill your son,’” she told Rukhshana Media in a weeping voice.
“It was around 11 am that I heard screams of my children, I run to the door, but two Taliban fighters were already inside my home, lashing my children,” said Ahmadi, “when they saw me, they started lashing me and asking ‘where is your gun? Where did you hide it?’”
She provided Rukhshana Media with pictures that show bruises on her and her children’s bodies, including a red mark on her son’s neck.
“They kicked my back, now I can’t move my body,” she said.
They left her house when they couldn’t find a gun. “One of them told me, we will be back soon,” Ahmadi added.
Her son, whom the Taliban fighter holds a dagger on his neck, asked Ahmadi, “why they wanted to kill me?”
Since the country fall to the Taliban, lives of many women who worked in Afghan security forces are in danger.
In the past few months, at least five female police officers have been killed in Ghor, Kandahar, Kapisa, and Ghazni provinces. The most recent incident happened on September 5, when three armed men, who called themselves Taliban, stormed Negar Masumi, a former policewoman’s house in Ghor province, and brutally killed her in front of her children.
