PESHAWAR – A 21-year-old woman was allegedly murdered in the name of honour here on Friday when her brothers threw her into a deep water well for her alleged illicit relations with an unidentified person.
Police after getting information retrieved the body from the water well and shifted it to hospital for autopsy.
Police also arrested her three brothers and sister-in-laws involved in the killing.
Police said that the victim was released on April 26 in an alleged murder case for killing his boyfriend with the support of a friend. However, the court released her on bail and when she reached home she was killed by her brothers.
The number of honour killing incidents has been increasing with each passing day after the usage of smartphones. Sometimes the misuse of mobile and exchanging pictures on social media develops enmities and family problems.
