LAHORE: Police said on Saturday that a man had killed his 22-year-old daughter for honour late on Friday in Samanabad.

They said Shahzada Shahid Pervaiz, a resident of Samanabad, killed her after a heated argument. Police said he had knifed her. They said she was taken to Services Hospital where she had succumbed to her injuries. Police said the body had been sent to a mortuary for autopsy.

They said Pervaiz had surrendered to police and produced the knife he had used to kill her. Police said a case had been registered against him on the complaint of his wife.

Pervaiz said he had no remorse. He said he had been compelled to kill her as she wanted to marry for love. A forensic surgeon at Mayo Hospital said the deceased had been stabbed in the stomach, chest and shoulders. He said the body had been returned to the family of the deceased for burial. The complainant refused to speak to The Express Tribune regarding the incident. A neighbor said the deceased had wanted to marry a teacher of hers. The deceased was pursuing a degree in sociology at the Punjab University.
