A woman, who was imprisoned in a dark room for 25 years in Afghanistan, has been rescued by the police.

The Taliban Interior Ministry, on Thursday, announced that the woman was rescued in Kabul, the capital of Afghanistan.

The woman was held in a room full of debris, according to disturbing images released by the ministry.

She was given food through a window.

“She feels unsafe and afraid whenever she sees other people,” the ministry spokesman, Abdul Matin Qani, said as he described her ordeal.

The woman is being treated in a Kabul hospital after she was subjected to mental and physical harm.

“Malnourished, she has also become severely anaemic,” a doctor said.

Her bones were worn and her joints were damaged, according to medics.

The police added that she suffered years of turmoil after a separation from her first husband, with further problems including infertility, her brothers’ criminal activities, and a dispute over inheritance.

The police also arrested four of her family members, including her brother and nephews.

Police stated that the case was being fully investigated.
