The body of a female teacher was found on Wednesday near Zarani city, western Nimruz’s provincial capital, a local source said.
A local journalist, who didn’t want to be named in the report, said the teacher was identified as Khatera, 27, and she taught at a public school.
Khatera was strangled to death with her own scarf, and her body was found in the evening of May 6 in Nadali town. Citing her family, a local Taliban official, said Khatera was killed by robbers who stole her jewelry.
No arrest was made in connection to the murder. At least 45 women have been mysteriously killed, or gone missing since the Taliban takeover of Afghanistan in August, Rukshana Media’s findings show.
