Woman killed by father, uncle
2012-12-27
[Dawn] A 24-year-old woman was shot at and killed by her father and paternal uncle for honour in Tibba Hamar village of Manga Mandi on Tuesday, police said.

Ambreen had contracted court marriage with Muhammad Ashraf few months ago and left the city. After sometime she came back and started living along with her husband at a rented locality in Manga.

On the day of the incident, Ambreen's father, Asghar, and uncle Ashraf traced her and shot at her. The suspects expeditiously departed at a goodly pace while the woman taken to hospital with two bullet wounds was pronounced dead on arrival.

Police handed over the body to the heirs after autopsy, started the paperwork but haven't done much else against two runaway suspects.

#2  So the woman's offence was a 'contracted court marriage' - presumably a civil marriage - rather than an Islamic one?

You mean Feudal Islamic Thugs, Don't you?
