Kabul: The Taliban administration of Afghanistan has dissolved five crucial departments of the former U.S.-backed government, including the country's Human Rights Commission, media reports said on Wednesday.

Afghanistan's media outlet Payk Media - Revealing the Truth tweeted: " The #Taliban have dissolved the Human Rights Commissions, Commission for Oversight and Implementation of the Constitution, the National Reconciliation Council, the National Security Council, and the secretariats of the House of Representatives and the Senate in a letter."

Meanwhile, Taliban rulers issued yet another bizarre diktat as they directed female staff members of the UN Assistance Mission in Afghanistan (UNAMA) to wear the hijab, media reports said.

The direction was issued by the  Taliban’s Ministry for the Propagation of Virtue and the Prevention of Vice.

The organization shared its direction given by the Taliban with its employees on Monday.

The Taliban came to power in Afghanistan last year on Aug 15.

Since then, the group has imposed several restrictions in the country.
