A pregnant woman and her husband
have been found dead in a canal with
gunshot wounds to the head, a day
after they were reportedly snatched by
relatives following a dispute.
Police told CNN Sunday that Aqsa
Shakeel, 26, and her husband,
Muhammad Shakeel, 30, were visited
by a group of relatives on Wednesday
at their home in Thikriwala, a village in
Pakistan’s eastern Punjab province.
Police said a heated argument broke
out between the couple and the family
members, who included Aqsa’s
brother, named as Muhammad Mauvia,
and her mother, Majeeda Bibi.
Aqsa’s family disapproved of the
marriage, according to police, though
no further details were given.
A search for the couple was initiated
when the husband’s father,
Muhammad Kushi, reported the couple
missing later Wednesday. Their bodies
were discovered in a canal near the
village Thursday evening. An autopsy
report revealed that they had been
tortured and shot in the head.
Police said only one relative, identified
as M Khawar, has so far been arrested
in connection with what police are
treating as a murder case. The other
relatives, including Aqsa’s mother,
brother and an uncle, remain at large.=================================== ***CONNECT WITH US***
