Woman killed for ‘defying family’

SAHIWAL: A woman was mercilessly put to death allegedly by her brothers for contracting a marriage of her own choosing, local police said on Saturday.

According to the police Shamim Akhtar, a resident of Tulle Bulle village, had tied the knot with Khizar Hayat in defiance of her family wishes. The couple was blessed with a son, and they were leading a happy and peaceful life.
However, their happy conjugal life ended on the night of December 31 when Akhtar’s brothers–Shabbar, Sabir and Zakir–allegedly took their sister to the Ravi river. The trio allegedly killed Akhtar and threw her body in the river.
Akhatr’s spouse Khizar Hayat was alarmed when she didn’t return home.
The subsequent search took him to the river, where he found the head-scarf of Akhtar and a visiting card of one of his brothers-in-law.
Hayat reported the matter to the police, which arrested Akhtar’s three brothers and their two accomplices–Ghulam Rasool and Bhura. The accused confessed to the crime. The police registered the murder case against them and mounted a search for Akhtar’s body.

Meanwhile, the Human Rights Commission of Pakistan (HRCP), district Sahiwal chapter, condemned the incident and appealed to the district police officer (DPO) to take action against the killers.
