Chakwal: Girl killed for honour
CHAKWAL: A girl was gunned down by her fiancé in the name of honour here on Sunday night, police said.
Family elders, according to the police, had engaged Sadia with her cousin Noor Mohmmad in their childhood. After the engagement, the cousin had been living in the home of Sadia. But the arrangement did not work out as Sadia wanted to marry Mohammad Wasim.
A couple of months ago Sadia and Wasim eloped. Khalid Masood, father of the girl, registered a kidnapping case with Kalar Kahar Police against Wasim. Police said the couple had been living in the Darul Aman.
On Sunday, the elders of the family went to the Darul Aman and took Sadia home. As she reached home, police said, Noor opened fire at the ill-fated girl, killing her instantly.
