kabul [Afghanistan]June 23 (ANI): With terrorism on the rise in Afghanistan since the Taliban took control of the country, residents of Kabul are now once again expressing concern over rising crime rates in the city, TOLOnews reported.
Some Kabul locals claim that crime in the city has risen recently. They said the issue needed more attention and that current efforts by security groups to keep Kabul safe were not enough, according to the Afghan News Agency.
Thirteen days ago, a woman was killed in Kabul, and the husband of the victim claimed that his wife was brutally murdered in the safest neighborhood of the city, TOLOnews reported.
Abdul Wahid, the husband of the murdered woman, claimed that his wife was home alone when the incident happened. Unidentified assailants broke into his home, killed his wife and stole some cash.
He went on to say that more than 13 days had passed since the incident, but no one had yet been arrested for his wife’s murder, TOLOnews reported.
“She was stabbed seven or eight times in the heart. They brutally suffocated her,” Abdul Wahid said.

Since the Taliban seized power in August 2021, the security situation in the country has continued to deteriorate. The group banned women from school, and later in December banned women from attending university and working with aid agencies. (Arnie)
