Taliban Islamabad, Apr.16 (ANI): In yet another incident of Taliban’s brutal ways of handing out punishments to people according to its own rules, the outlawed insurgents shot dead a man and a woman on charges of having illicit relations in Hangu district near the border of Orakzai Agency in the Federally Administered Tribal Areas (FATA).

According to the Dawn, the masked Taliban insurgents first killed the woman aged 45 by pumping bullets in her chest, and then opened Kalashnikov fire at her and the man.

According to the sources, the women pleaded in front of the Taliban of not being guilty, but the insurgents did not pay heed to the call for mercy.

“Have mercy on me, please have mercy; the charges against me are false and no man has ever touched her,” she yelled.

Sources said the Taliban had asked the relatives of both the man and woman to appear before them for being quizzed, and later pumped bullets into them in the presence of their relatives. (ANI)
