Girl killed for ‘honourÂ’

FAISALABAD: A girl was stabbed to death by her uncle and a cousin for honour in Mehmoodabad in the limits of Mansoorabad police station here on Saturday.

Deceased Huma was the daughter of a singer and known Shia noha khawan, Hassan Sadiq.

Huma, who allegedly eloped with her lover, had returned to her house after a few days. Her father had a case registered against four brothers Khawar, Zulfiqar, Ijaz and Bagga on Jan 4.

On Saturday, Huma exchanged hot words with her uncle Salamat Ali, a known flute expert, when the latter asked her to mend her ways. Falling into a rage, Salamat and Tariq stabbed her to death and later both of them surrendered to police.
