According to the Persian Independent, the gruesome death went public only recently because insurgents threatened the girl’s family not to tell anyone about what happened.
When pictures of what appeared to be the Mahjabin’s severed head were published on social media, her coach decided to speak out.
“All the players of the volleyball team and the rest of the women athletes are in a bad situation and in despair and fear,” the coach said.
“Everyone has been forced to flee and live in unknown places.”
Mahjabin had played for the Kabul Municipality Volleyball Club before the Taliban’s takeover in late August.
The coach, who wished not to be named, said that only two girls from the team managed to escape, and Mahjabin was among the girls left behind.
In September, players from Afghanistan’s national volleyball team said they were in hiding from the insurgents.
Zahra Fayazi, who fled to the UK in August, said the Taliban had murdered a squad member.
“Our players who were living in the provinces had to leave and live in other places,” she told the BBC.
“They even burned their sports equipment to save themselves and their families. They didn’t want them to keep anything related to sport. They are scared.
“Many of our players from provinces were threatened many times by their relatives who are Taliban and Taliban followers.
“The Taliban asked our players’ families to not allow their girls to do sport, otherwise they will be faced with unexpected violence.”
Since the Taliban seized power in Afghanistan, they claimed they would not enforce the strict oppressive laws of the 90s, when females were mainly excluded from education and work.
The Taliban’s education authority had said that this time women would be allowed to attend university.
