Fate of 10 Indian widows of Islamic State terrorists, imprisoned in Afghanistan, casts new light on movement that led dozens from Kashmir to Kerala into Nangarhar

Ten Indian women, the widows of Islamic State terrorists killed in combat in the mountains of Afghanistan's eastern Nangarhar province, are now being held in Kabul's Badam Bagh prison, highly-placed government sources have told Network 18. The government is still debating whether to seek their extradition to face trial on terrorism charges in India, or leave them to face prosecution and punishment under Afghan law, the sources said.
