A woman, who fled Afghanistan after the country was taken over by the Taliban, has revealed the group's fighters had sex with dead bodies.  

The woman, identified only as Muskan, had left Afghanistan after the Taliban overthrew the government and took control of Kabul. She had worked for the police force in Afghanistan, and is currently in India.

Speaking to local media in India, Muskan revealed the horrific condition of the country. The woman claimed the Jihadist group would kidnap women or shoot them dead, and added they were also involved in necrophilia, the practice of having sex with corpses.

“They rape dead bodies too. They don’t care whether the person is dead or alive... Can you imagine this?” Muskan said, according to the North-Eastern Chronicle. 

Muskan claimed she herself was under threat while in Afghanistan and had to leave her job and escape the country to survive. She added the women working for the government in the country are highly likely to face a terrible fate if they do not flee, News 18 reported.

Muskan's claims come just days after reports surfaced that members of the Taliban shot and killed a woman after she went out in public without wearing a burqa. This was just hours after the Islamist terrorist group vowed to respect women's rights.

Zabihullah Mujahid, the Taliban’s longtime spokesman, had said the country's new de facto rulers would respect women's rights within the norms of their interpretation of Sharia law. He also encouraged women to return to work and allowed girls to return to school.

As Afghanistan fell under the Taliban rule, concerns grew for its citizens, especially women, as experts and activists suggested the country has once again become an extremely dangerous place.

A former judge from Afghanistan, Najla Ayoubi, told Sky News she had been speaking to people in the country and had received examples of "bad behaviour and violence against women." Ayoubi said one woman was "put on fire because she was accused of bad cooking for Taliban fighters" in northern Afghanistan. Ayoubi added she had to flee for her life for speaking in favor of women and women's rights. 

During their first regime in the country from 1996 to 2001, Taliban brutally enforced their Sharia law by beating up women publicly if they did not cover their face and stepped out of their homes without being accompanied by a male relative. The group had also long opposed women's right to education.
