Afghan soldiers gang rape two women

KUNDUZ CITY - Afghan Police soldiers gang-raped two women of a family in Dasht-i-Archi district of northern Kunduz province, residents said Sunday.

Ismail, a resident of the center of Dasht-i-Archi district, told Pajhwok Afghan News that three ALP men Matin, Sewyak and a third broke into their house on Saturday night, Pajhwok news has reported.

“They handcuffed me and my sister in law and then sexually assaulted my wife and my wife’s sister,” he said.

Abdul Baqi, another resident, said: “I was also at Ismail’s house last night with my daughter-in-law and my son when the incident happened.”

He said the ALP forces kept men and women in separate rooms. “They were with our women inside from 7pm to 11pm, then they come out and took us to another place. Later they came again with more friends and again sexually assaulted our women,” he alleged.

Baqi said their women were assaulted until the morning and demanded justice from the government. He said ALP forces also took away their weapons, jewelry and money.

Kunduz police chief Brig. Gen. Abdul Hamid Hamidi confirmed the ALP forces had sexually assaulted two women of a family in Dasht-i-Archi district.

He said so far three ALP members had been detained in connection with the case and investigation was still underway.

ALP forces are accused for murders and armed robbery cases in many parts of the country.
