Taliban has reportedly beheaded a player of the Afghan junior women’s national volleyball team. 

The beheaded woman player named Mahjabin Hakimi was killed by the Taliban in October. 

The Taliban has threatened the family members of the player not to talk about it. 

Mahjabin had played for the Kabul Municipality Volleyball Club before the takeover of Afghanistan by the Taliban. 

Notably, a few days back, pictures of what appeared to be the severed head of the player flooded the social media.

According to reports, the incident was confirmed by one of Mahjabin coaches. 

Ever since taking over control of Afghanistan, the Taliban have been identifying and hunting down women athletes. 

“All the players of the volleyball team and the rest of the women athletes are in a bad situation and in despair and fear,” said one of the coaches.
