A teenage girl and her boyfriend were killed for “honour” in a remote village in Pindi Gheb Tehsil, about 90km from Attock. Police have arrested the alleged killers and are investigating.
The Pindigheb police said Aunul Hassan, 23, was involved with Falaknaz of Jangla village. Hassan allegedly used to meet Falaknaz in secret, which her parents later found out about.
On Friday night, when Hassan came by to see Falaknaz, her father and brothers realized he was there. Muhammad Akram and his three sons took them both and tortured Hassan, before killing both with an axe. The police booked and arrested Akram and his sons Sahib Khan, Zawar Khan and Sharaf Khan for murder.
Separately, the body of one of the two children who drowned in the Indus River near Khushal Garh a few days ago was recovered from the river near Kalabagh.
Fahad Hussain and his brother Haider, both of whom were under 12, had gone for a dip in the Indus River but drowned when a strong wave pushed them into deep waters. Haider’s body remains missing.
