A man from Sabzazar has been arrested for allegedly killing his sister in yet another honour killing case on Thursday.
According to police, Iqbal strangled his 22-year-old sister Adeeba – in the presence of family members – for having illicit relations with a boy from their neighbourhood. The alleged murderer later asked his family members not to disclose the incident. The victim’s family planned to bury her in their native city of Khoshab, but locals informed the police and Iqbal was arrested. Police have recovered the body and shifted it to the city morgue for autopsy. Police said the girl was strangled to death with a piece of cloth, which had also been confiscated as evidence. A first information report (FIR) has been registered against Iqbal and investigations are underway.
