Five people including a teenage couple who married against their families’ will have been killed by relatives in the latest incident of so-called honour killing in Pakistan, police say….
The couple – Kamalan and Allah Rakhio – both 18 and from rival clans in the southern province of Sindh, had married about three months ago after eloping, said Usman Subaho, a police officer investigating the case.
“They were killed just a few days after returning to their village after getting married in Karachi,” he said….
The girl’s family took her wedding as a slight on their honour.
The attackers stormed the couple’s house, killing them and three other family members including a three-year-old girl, said Subaho.
Eleven family members were wounded in the attack, he said.
The Human Rights Commission of Pakistan says about 1,000 people are killed in honour-related crimes every year in Pakistan.
