Afghanistan: Taliban insurgent caught on camera publicly flogging teen in Badakhshan

Kabul: A Taliban insurgent was caught on camera publicly flogging a teenage boy in Afghanistan's Badakhshan province recently.

The Taliban regime is known for implementing strict punishment techniques  on people.

A Taliban leader recently said they will once again resume executions and the amputation of hands for criminals they convict.

The insurgents, who are known to follow a harsh version of Islamic justice, took control over Afghanistan in August.

According to a senior official – a veteran leader of the hardline Islamist group who was in charge of justice during its previous period in power – executions would not necessarily take place in public as they did before, reports The Guardian.

In an interview with Associated Press as quoted by The Guardian, Mullah Nooruddin Turabi – who was justice minister and head of the so-called ministry of propagation of virtue and prevention of vice during the Taliban’s previous rule – dismissed outrage over the Taliban’s executions in the past, and warned the world against interfering with Afghanistan’s new rulers.

Turabi is currently incharge of prison.
