In a shocking incident, Taliban terrorists have beheaded a member of the Afghan junior women's national volleyball team, a coach told the Persian Independent.
The coach said in an interview that, a woman player named Mahjabin Hakimi was killed by the Taliban earlier in October, but nobody learnt about the bloody murder as the insurgents had threatened her family not to talk about it.
Mahjabin played for the Kabul Municipality Volleyball Club before Kabul fell to Taliban. Before few days, pictures of what seemed to be her severed head and bloodied neck turned up on social media.
The coach of the Afghan women's national volleyball team said that only two of the team's players was able to escape from the country before the Taliban wrested complete control in August. Mahjabin Hakimi was among the many other unfortunate women sportspersons who were left behind.
Since their takeover, the Taliban have tried to identify and hunt down women athletes. "All the players of the volleyball team and the rest of the women athletes are in a bad situation and in despair and fear," the coach told the Persian Independent. "Everyone has been forced to flee and live underground."
