NOWSHERA: A teenaged girl was killed and a young boy was injured by the girl’s relatives in an honor-related incident at Pabbi on Monday night. Villagers said the girl was shot dead by her relatives after they allegedly caught her with the boy in her home late at night.
Sources said the girl’s relatives locked both in a room and informed the family of the boy about the matter. They added father of the boy showed his willingness in a jirga convened at the time to accept the girl as his daughter-in-law, but the girl’s family demanded a woman to be given in Swara to the girl’s family as she was already engaged to another boy of the village.
