Pakistan couple slain in honor killing: police
    2017-August-10  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

A MAN killed his own sister and her husband-to-be as they went to register their marriage at a Pakistan court, police said Tuesday, in the country’s latest so-called honor killing.

The family of the 22-year-old woman had objected to the match so the couple ran away and came to Multan High Court in central Pakistan several days later for a civil ceremony, an official said.

“The girl’s brother had got information (the couple) were coming to court so he waited for them on the premises, where he shot them,” Rao Tariq, head of the local police station, told reporters. Under previous legislation the culprits — usually men — could get away with the killings after being pardoned by members of their own family.

But in July last year the high-profile murder of social media star Qandeel Baloch, whose brother confessed to the killing, reignited calls for reform.

In October parliament passed a law aimed at removing the ability to forgive honor killers.
