Police spokesman Khalid Zadran said t Nekbakht had spent a month in hospital after being rescued.

He wrote on X the acting interior minister, Sirajuddin Haqqani, had appointed a special medical team for Nekbakht’s treatment. She was moved to a safe place after being discharged.

“Nekbakht was sent to hospital for check-up from time to time. She was getting better day by day. But on Sunday night, her condition deteriorated and she passed away on Monday morning at around 6:30am,” he added.

According to the police spokesman, Nekbakht was laid to rest in the Wazir Mohammad Akbar Khan area of the capital on Monday morning.
