Lieutenant Negara was shot by a gunman on her way to work.
She was a senior officer with the Afghan police force in Helmand Province.
She'd been expected to survive her injuries.
That prognosis proved overly optimistic.
Just two months earlier her predecessor, also a woman, met exactly the same fate.
Another female officer at Negara's funeral on Monday said the Taliban had threatened to kill all women in the force.
"We've had a warning from the Taliban that they will kill all of us within three months. They said they'd kill every woman police officer in Helmand," she said.
Such women are paying a high price for their jobs.
The Taliban often targets senior female officials working for the U.S.-backed government also some attacks have been linked to conservative male relatives.
The country's human rights commission says violence against women has risen sharply over the past two years.
