Zainab, a young girl was shot dead at a security checkpoint while she was on her way home from a wedding party along with other relatives, her family claimed.

Zainab’s family said their car was stopped at a checkpoint by the Islamic Emirate forces. The forces of the Islamic Emirate opened fire on Zainab and killed her, the family claimed.

The family called on the Islamic Emirate to hold the perpetrators accountable. “It (the bullet) crossed the car and hit my sister’s heart. My sister died in my arms,” said Zainab’s sister. Zainab was working at a bank. She was supposed to get married in the near future.

Zainab’s father said that she was the only breadwin-ner for the family. “I demand that the killer of my daughter be exe-cuted,” he said.

The Islamic Emirate said that efforts are underway to hunt down the perpetrators. “We have asked questions about the incident. We will soon share the information with the media,” said General Mobin, spokesman for the Kabul secu-rity department.
