Afghan girl seeking justice after being raped by militants https://ariananews.af/afghan-girl-seeking-justice-after-being-raped-by-militants/ Wed, 18 May 2016 05:26:21 +0000 http://ariananews.af/?p=172007 samanganAfter attacking a family whose son is a member of the Afghan National Army, the armed men have raped a 17 year old girl in northern Samangan province of Afghanistan, the girl seeking justice in Kabul claimed in a video footage to Ariana News.

Noruddin, the brother of the girl who is a soldier in Helmand province of Afghanistan claimed that the armed men had taken hostage his sister and they have raped her while she was in the custody of the powerful militant men in his province.

“They have attacked the house. They have injured my old parents and when my sister was trying to escape, they have injured her mouth with their rifle, they have broken her mouth and have taken my sister with themselves and dishonored to her,” he said.

He names one of the kidnappers as ‘Bakhtyar’ who he says is working with the Samangan Police Recruitment Center during the day while he is in the Taliban side at night.

“We have registered our complaints since three months, no one is caring about us, one of these kidnappers is working with the government, he is also working with the Taliban, no one is arresting them,” he added.

The girl who is seeking justice questioned,” what type of administration is this? what type of government is this? we should not seek justice, because we are poor? where we must go?”.

The Ministry of Interior (MoI) of Afghanistan promises to investigate the case and arrest the people involved.

” This is a very irritating case, we will take strict actions to arrest these people as soon as possible,” Najib Danish, a spokesman for the MoI assured.

This comes as most of the people have little access to justice in the provinces of Afghanistan compare to the cities as the armed warlords and powerful men are speaking the first word not the law and justice.
