A 24 -year old Pakistani woman identified as Waziran, has allegedly been stoned to death by her husband and his brother, in a brutal honour killing.
National Highway and Motorway police found her mutilated body with severe head injuries near the Indus Highway on June 27.
They were able to identify the body of Waziran, who lived in the village of Wadda Chachar.
Local police say they believe the woman was pelted with stones and repeatedly hit with a wooden stick during the attack in Jamshoro.
In a video shared online, Waziran’s grieving father, Gurl Muhammed, was seen crying for justice beside her grave after the incident.
Authorities say the man initially testified that her death was an accident, but later retracted his statement, alleging that she had been killed by her husband, Allah Baksh, and his brother, Kareem.
Both Baksh and Kareem have been arrested and detained by police.
In a statement, Baksh alleged that her own family were responsible for the stoning, because they did not approve of Waziran’s decision to marry him.
A three-man panel have been set up to investigate the incident, which the police are treating as honour killing.
Honour killing, which is common in Pakistan, is the killing of a relative, especially a girl or woman perceived to have brought dishonour to her family.
