A girl committed suicide to avoid stoning punishment by a Taliban official in Afghanistan.
According to the British news agency The Mirror, last week the girl was caught by the Taliban outside the house with a person who was not a member of her family. The couple was identified as Sirajuddin from village Sirzar in Dolina district and Salima from village Berenji in the same district.
Both ran away from home on 10th of last month to get married, but they were caught by Taliban forces. The Taliban killed Sirajuddin and took the girl into custody.
The girl was sentenced to stoning on the charge of extramarital relationship, which was to be executed last Friday, but to avoid the punishment, the girl committed suicide a day before.
