Banu Negar Biography
Who was Banu Negar ?
Taliban militants shot dead a pregnant policewoman in front of her husband and children in a door-to-door execution, witnesses said.
Banu Negar was killed at her home in Firozkoh, the capital of the central Ghor province, amid escalating violence in Afghanistan under the new regime.
Her mother, who worked at the local prison, was eight months pregnant at the time of her execution on Saturday.
Cause of Death
The terror group told the BBC that they were not involved in his death and are investigating him.
Spokesman Zabiullah Mujaheed said: “We are aware of the incident and I am confirming that the Taliban have not killed her, our investigation is ongoing.”
He added that the Taliban have announced an amnesty for people who worked for the previous administration.

Mujaheed said her death was caused by “personal enmity or something else.”
Three armed men arrived at the house and searched it before tying up family members and carrying out the massacre.
Images have circulated online showing blood-spattered walls in the home and her defaced corpse.
The Taliban have been trying to project a more tolerant and moderate image of themselves since they took power.

But several incidents of terrible violence have been reported in Afghanistan under the repressive regime.
Fighters have been seen going door to door hunting former members of the Afghan security forces and Western allies.
Earlier this week, a senior Afghan police force fled after being “brutally beaten” by the Taliban.
Gulafroz Ebtekar, believed to be 34, was a former deputy director of criminal investigations at the Afghan Ministry of the Interior and is seen as a role model for Afghan women with a notable media presence.
The Taliban targeted her at the gates of Kabul’s Hamid Karzai International Airport, where she spent five nights trying to get a place on an evacuation flight.
She said: I sent messages to the embassies of many countries to save myself and my family, but it was all in vain. ‘
It comes after the Taliban attacked Afghan protesters demanding equal rights as they fired into the air and “fired tear gas” during a peaceful march yesterday.
The women’s march, the second in as many days in the capital, began with protesters laying a wreath in front of the Afghan Defense Ministry to honor the soldiers who died fighting the extremist group, before moving on to the presidential palace.
But the peaceful protest turned into chaos and turned violent as Taliban special forces armed with assault rifles swooped into the crowd, fired shots into the air and sent the protesters fleeing.
Witnesses said that Taliban forces also used tear gas to stop the protest, and that women are seen coughing and clutching their throats in videos widely shared on social media.
A prominent protester, Maryam Naiby, 20, said of the campaign in the wake of the Taliban takeover: “We are here to win human rights in Afghanistan. I love my country. I’ll always be here.’
When the Taliban first took over the country some two decades ago, women and girls were mostly denied education and employment.
Burqas were made mandatory in public, women could not leave the house without a male partner, and street protests were unthinkable.
While the group has promised a more inclusive government, many women in the country remain skeptical.
