It is a sorry state of affairs in the Taliban-ruled Afghanistan. In another brutal incident, the Talibani militants allegedly beheaded a member of the Afghan junior women’s national volleyball team.

As per sources, the team coach said that a woman player named Mahjabin Hakimi was killed by the Taliban earlier in October.

Since Mahjabin played for the Kabul Municipality Volleyball Club. It was before the Taliban takeover of Afghanistan. She was one of the club’s stars players. A few days back, pictures of her severed head and bloodied neck surfaced on social media.

Sources say, two of the team’s players were able to escape from there before the Taliban takeover in August.

Since the Taliban takeover, life has changed upside down for the citizens there. Afghan currency is falling, banks have no cash, the price rise is hitting the people badly. Moreover, the militants are identifying and hunting down women athletes.

The decreasing value of Afghan currency against the dollar has greatly reduced business in the markets.

Furthermore, the smuggling of dollars is also causing major problems in the markets.

Currently, one dollar is exchanged for about 90 Afghanis in the Kabul market.

Sources also say that the Afghan central bank ran down most of its U.S. dollar cash reserves in the weeks before the Taliban took control of the country.

People have been queuing up for hours to withdraw dollar savings.
