ABBOTABAD: In another appalling act of misogyny, a group of armed men entered the house of a married couple in Kanthiali village on Tuesday night, stripped them and fled after taking nude pictures of them.
Naseer Ahmed told the police that he was asleep with his family when Safeer, Arif and eight other men armed with pistols and AK-47s barged in and held him and his wife, Shumaila Bibi, at gunpoint.
The intruders thrashed the couple before stripping them down and dragging them out in to the veranda, where the other family members were being held hostage. The attackers then took pictures of the couple and left the home while firing in the air.
Police said that the accused, Safeer, suspected that Naseer was having an affair with his wife and had acted out of “honour”. It was also reported that Safeer had beaten his wife black and blue, but the matter had not been reported to the police.
The police have registered a criminal case against all of the accused.
In a similar case in Abbottabad District, a woman was stripped naked and thrashed on Monday.
