Muafia Bibi, 17, and her husband Sajjad Ahmed, 30, had been married for just over a week when they were killed in an apparent “honour killing” in Satrah village in Pakistan’s eastern Punjab province.
Muhammad Ijaz, who runs a nearby mobile phone shop, said: “Their legs and arms were tied while their mouths were gagged with pieces of cloth.
“The father of the girl announced loudly that he was going to slit the throat of her daughter and her husband.” He claimed that a crowd gathered as they were brought to the courtyard of the family house.
Someone said the children should be sent away but Ms Bibi’s father told them to stay and watch. He said they should learn what would happen to them if they married someone of their own choice.” —express.co.uk
