SHIBERGHAN (Pajhwok): Daesh (Islamic State) rebels on Tuesday beheaded a 12-year-old boy for supplying food to police in northern Jawzjan province, officials said.

Deputy police chief Col. Abdul Hafiz Khashi told Pajhwok Afghan News the incident took place in the Kotal-i-Austi village of Darzab district. The child’s brother-in-law was serving in the police force.

The militants accused the child of supplying food and non-food items to the police personnel. He was killed in line with a kangaroo court verdict.

Khashi remarked: “This is the worst crime committed in the province by Daesh militants, who have been hit hard recently by security forces.”

Meanwhile, Maghfirat Samimi, provincial head of the Afghanistan Independent Human Rights Commission, hit out at the IS for the grisly crime.

Maulvi Hamidullah, a cleric in Shiberghan, said the killing of humans, especially children, had no justification. “The killing of an innocent person means the killing of humanity.”

The boy, identified as Rahim, had been in Daesh captivity for a month before he was killed.
