In-Laws Who Tortured Afghan Freed From Jail By Afghan Courts

Remember Sahar Gul, the young Afghan girl who was severely tortured and locked up in a cellar in 2011 by her in-laws for refusing to become a prostitute?   Three of them (mother-in-law, father-in-law and sister-in-law) had been convicted and jailed last year for attempted murder (they had been starving her), but the appeals court reversed that decision, and the three are to be set free. The two women have already been released. No word about father-in-law, yet. The husband (30s) was never found.

The rest here.

It's not the only case of being forced into prostitution. Sahar Gul survived, Mah Gul wasn't so lucky, she was beheaded by her mother-in-law last year for refusing to engage in prostitution.
