Fearing that they might be killed by the Taliban or prisoners freed by them, over 200 women judges across Afghanistan have gone into hiding.

After taking over Kabul, the Taliban had released thousands of criminals, including terrorists and senior Al-Qaeda operatives.

According to a report by the UK-based The Independent, the judges fear that the released prisoners might kill them as they had earlier sentenced them. The female judges are also terrified by the return of the Taliban.

The report quoted a 38-year-old judge, in hiding in Afghanistan, as saying that after she left her place, local Taliban authorities went to her locality in Nangarhar province to enquire if any woman judge was hiding there.
