Pakistani Muslim parents arrested for ‘honor’ murdering their 15-year-old daughter by dousing her with acid
Her “crime?’ Just looking at a boy, which the parents considered to be dishonoring the family. The father took his daughter inside the house, beat her up, then poured enough acid over her with the help of his wife, that it killed her.
BBC Local police officer Raja Tahir Ayub told the BBC that the girl’s father became enraged when he saw his daughter “looking at two boys” riding on a motorcycle outside their home on Monday. They suspected she was having illicit relations with one of the pair. Police say that that the couple did not take their daughter to hospital until the next morning, and she succumbed to her injuries on Tuesday evening.
The Human Rights Commission of Pakistan reported 943 women were slaughtered in honor killings last year.
