Balkh Man ‘Cuts Off’ His Wife’s Ears

A man in the northern province of Balkh is on the run after allegedly chopping off his wife’s ears, local officials confirmed.  
 
Zarina, 21, who is undergoing treatment at Balkh Hospital in Mazar-e-Sharif, told TOLOnews that her husband cut off her ears in an act of domestic violence on Monday night.  
 
“My husband always treats me badly. I wasn’t even allowed to visit my parents. He is a very suspicious man and often accused me of talking to strange men when I went to visit my parents,” she said.
 
Zarina has called on Afghan legal and judicial institutions to arrest her husband and to ensure he is prosecuted.
 
Speaking on her future, she said: “I will no longer live with him.”  
 
“She married when she was only 14. Her husband went to Iran only one week after their marriage. He returned from Iran two months ago but I don’t know about their disputes,” said the victim’s aunt, Hamida.
 
Meanwhile, doctors have said Zarina is in a satisfactory condition.
 
Balkh police officials have also said they will arrest the husband and ensure justice is carried out.
 
The incident marks the first reported act of violence against women in Balkh since the start of this year.
