The father of the victim can be seen crying beside her grave. However, the police revealed that the father had initially said that it was an accident but he later withdrew the statement saying that the woman’s brother, Kareem and husband, Allah Baksh were responsible for the heathen act.

The two were immediately arrested and while in police custody, the husband, Baksh said that the act was done by his family that disapproved their marriage.

Meantime, reports from locals show that a three-man joint investigation was launched to investigate the issue because local police were taking it lightly probably relating to honor killing.

What is honor killing? It can be described as the killing of a relative which mostly involves girls and women who brings dishonor to a family. It is a very common practice in Pakistan. However what bothers the global community is that it is gender biased as the female are the targeted group.
