Fifteen-year-old Sahar Gul, who suffered brutality at her in-laws' house would be sent to India for treatment, it has been reported.

Both the mother-in-law and the sister-in-law of Sahar were arrested and her husband was being sought, the Associated Press quoted Interior Ministry spokesman Sediq Sediqi as saying.
Sahar Gul was tortured and locked up in a basement for resisting an attempt to force her into prostitution by her inlaws.

The girl who got married seven months ago to a 30-year-old man was rescued by the Afghan police last week and was found with broken fingers, hot iron marks and fingernails and hair pulled out by her husband. She was also denied food.

"After police rescued her from a dark room of her in-laws' house, we saw her nails had been pulled out by her husband. And she said in a broken voice that her husband used to cut her flesh using pliers," CNN quoted Baghlan police official Jawid Basharat as saying.

Violence against women has not come down in Afghan society even after the Taliban regime has ended in the country. Human rights activists across the world have hoped that the situation for Afghan women would improve during the last ten years of US presence in the country but there has been no change.
