SUKKUR: A girl was allegedly gunned down by her brothers allegedly because she married of her own will in Lal Mahaikh village near Sukkur on Monday.
S*, wife of Amjad Deho, was in her house when her brothers broke into the house and killed her. SITE police shifted the body to Civil hospital for autopsy but they have yet to register the case.
Reportedly about a month ago, S* visited the women complaint cell at Sukkur and complained that her brothers wanted to marry her off to an elderly man while she wanted to marry Deho. She further said that her brothers, Umeed Ali and others, had threatened to kill her and so she did not want to go with them.
The girl appeared in court, where she gave the same statement and the judge ordered the police to send her to Darul Aman. While she was living in the shelter, her brothers met her and assured her that they will marry her to Deho. On their surety, she went back. Her brothers, honouring their promise, married her off to Deho but still bore a grudge against her.
