Since the beginning of the fiscal year 1399, Afghanistan’s Attorney General Office (AGO) has dealt with 2,088 cases of violence against women.

Jamshid Rasooli, a spokesman for the AGO, said Thursday at the government media and information center that 2,088 cases of violence against women has been addressed since the beginning of the fiscal year 1399.
“Out of 2,088 cases of violence against women, 622 cases in Kabul, 256 cases in Balkh, 208 cases in Herat, 119 cases in Daikundi, 72 cases in Faryab, 69 cases in Bamyan, 67 cases in Takhar, 66 cases in Nangarhar, and from 1 to 46 cases have been registered in other provinces,” said Rasooli.

He added that 1,100 cases of beating, 234 cases of harassment and 173 cases of rape were the highest number of cases of violence against women in the past nine months, respectively.
Violence against women is one of the major problem in Afghan society. Despite huge investment during the nearly two decades, it exists brutally.
