A woman who has come over to India from Afghanistan has revealed that Taliban insurgents had had sex with dead bodies.
The woman, identified as Muskan by Indian news outlet News18, said she worked in the police force in Afghanistan and fled the country due to fear of the Taliban.
Taliban Fighters Raped Dead Bodies
Muskan, who now lives in India's capital of New Delhi, revealed that Taliban either picked up women from each family or shot them to satiate their desires. She added that they even raped dead bodies and had no regard for whether the person was dead or alive.
She continued that any woman who worked for the government suffered a terrible fate. Therefore, she left her job and escaped from the country because her life was in danger. She noted that she received several warnings when she was in Afghanistan and there was not only a threat to her life but her family as well.
"When we were there, we received numerous warnings. If you go to work, you are under threat, your family is under threat. After one warning, they would stop giving any warning," Muskan told the outlet. "They rape dead bodies too. They don't care whether the person is dead or alive... Can you imagine this?"
Another Afghan woman who migrated to India in 2018 said the Taliban had shot her father because he worked for the police and her uncle because he worked as a doctor for the Afghan army.
