Two men ended their lives in separate incidents in Nimruz and Zabul provinces.
A man hanged himself from the ceiling of a hotel room in Zaranj, Nimruz’s capital city, sources on Monday confirmed to Hasht-e Subh.
The man, whose identity has not been revealed, committed suicide during the night, and there were no further specifics provided on the motives behind this suicide.
Meanwhile, a reliable local source in Zabul reported a 17-year-old boy committed suicide in the same province.
The young man ended his life on Sunday night in Qalat, Zabul’s capital city, according to the source.
The cause of suicides in Afghanistan, which have been on the rise since the Taliban regained power, is reported to be poverty and trauma caused by the restrictive and repressive measures adopted by the Taliban.
