The primitive culture of premeditated honour killing is still rampant in the remote areas of Pakistan as a male relative on Tuesday murdered his female kin along with her purported paramour in a karo-kari tradition in Mirpurkhas, reported 24NewsHD TV channel.
After killing them both, the deceased girl’s uncle reached the police station and turned himself in.
The karo-kari act is usually committed against women who are thought to have brought dishonour to their family by engaging in illicit pre-marital or extra-marital relations. In order to restore this honour, a male family member must kill the female in question.
