During a meeting with Taliban officials at the Ministry of Interior Affairs- Afghanistan, the UNAMA Human Rights said that there is a need for investigations, transparency and accountability of such cases in Afghanistan. 
"UNAMA Human Rights met with Taliban officials at @moiafghanistan today. Discussed alleged cases of human rights violations and concerns re ex-ANSF/Govt members, civsoc, media, judiciary, religious clerics and women activists. Need for investigations, transparency & accountability," the "UNAMA said in a Tweet on Thursday. Several media persons, government members, religious clerics and women activists have been killed in Afghanistan.
Last year in December, a religious scholar was killed in Afghanistan's western Farah province. In November, four women activists in the Afghan city of Mazar-i-Sharif in the northern Balkh province were killed. 
Various violent incidents against women have emerged since the Taliban took control of Afghanistan after the fall of the government in August. 
Despite repeated calls from all around the world, the Taliban have failed to deliver its promises on women's safety and their assurance of an inclusive government.
