Afghan officials say they're ready to send tortured girl abroad for treatment

Afghan officials said Tuesday they are ready to send abroad for treatment a 15-year-old girl who was locked in the basement of her in-laws' house and tortured.

Sediq Sediqqi, a spokeman for the interior ministry, said they would defer to Sahar Gul's doctor on whether she should be sent to India for further treatment.

Meanwhile, police have arrested Sahar's father-in-law, but her husband is still eludes them.

Earlier, officials also arrested her mother-in-law and her sister-in-law.

    Good, I was hoping things would turn out okay for this girl. Maybe she won't have to go back to Afghanistan after her treatment, if she doesn't want to.

    Who are you to judge? The customs, religion or laws of a country. (Bass ackwards) Women can never be equal to men. The next thing would be women getting married to each other. Haha. Ruin the country. Cast the first stone...

    • Really???

      Lucky he wasn't here instead of in that bass ackward place where women are taught to be sheep. He might have got himself Bobbited by the girl. Of course here she wouldn't have been married off openly by her parents while she was underage to a man old enough to be her father. Since 75% of marriages are with underage girls that country IS uncivilized.

    @ 'Allah': people like you kill me. Talking to try to make wrong right, to defend the indefensible. This is 2012. Even the slowest of developing countries can no longer feign ignorance in its ideas, and behaviors towards women. As a man (a real man, that is) I know for a fact that guys abuse women out of feelings of inadequacy and s*e*xual inadequacy, and for no other reason, cultural or otherwise. It is a control mechanism employed by the weak minded and the stupid; this goes for developed as well as lesser developed countries. "You don't understand us; you don't know our ways" (this said in perfect pitch, whiny b*t*h tone). Trust me, REAL MEN understand every one of you to your core, and despise every cell of your being.

    @ allah:
    Who am I to judge?
    I'm a woman.
    Let me guess...you're a "man".
    Women are already equal to men in developed countries...that's why your kind of thinking *is* bass akwards, and by your misogynistic tone, so are you.
    Cast the first stone, indeed.

    Let *women* cast the first stone, and maybe your beliefs about women might change...I doubt it, though...trolls generally don't.
