HERAT CITY (Pajhwok): A man killed his daughter-in-law over a family dispute in western Herat province on Sunday, a day after a youth was shot dead in the provincial capital, police said.

Police spokesman Abdul Ahad Walizada told Pajhwok Afghan News that the woman was killed in Maslakh area of Herat city, the provincial capital, at 7:00am.

He said the alleged killer had been detained by police and was currently being interrogated. Initial investigation showed the murder resulted from a family dispute.

The police spokesman also said a young man named Torjan was gunned down in the limits of the 9th police district in Kocha Babai Barq area of Herat City on Saturday evening.

Torjan, an inhabitant of Badghis province, had earlier killed a man in Badghis and his murder appeared to be a result of that enmity.
