Woman Dies 5 Months After Release From 25 Years of Captivity

A woman who was kept imprisoned for 25 years by her brother died Monday (February 26) in Kabul.

The fifty-year-old Nikbakht was released by security officials five months ago and was kept under treatment by the Islamic Emirate for 45 days.

“Nikbakht was taken to a hospital and the acting interior minister, Sirajudin Haqqani, had assigned a special medical team to care for her. She was under treatment for 45 days and then returned home,” said Khalid Zadran, the spokesperson for Kabul security command.

“Today, I was called and told that Nikbakht died. I along with the elders of the neighborhood went to the police department and then to Nikbakht’s home to bury her,” said Khadim Hussain, a community leader at Chahar Qala area in Kabul.

Two female nurses were also assigned to treat Nikbakht.

“I was taking care of her, she was fine, she was talking and was eating food,” said Roshan Gul, a nurse.

Khalid Zadran said that the brother of Nikbakht is still behind bars.

“Her brother’s case has been completed and has been sent to the court which will be followed up by the court,” said Khalid Zadran.

Nikbakht was found in September 2023 by security forces in police district 10 of Kabul city and she was taken to the hospital before returning home where she died five months after her release.
