A British woman was murdered in a suspected “honor killing” on July 20th 2016, in Pakistan. She was lured there for just this reason by her own family!
To add insult to injury, she was raped by her ex-husband before her death.
A local policeman, who first investigated the 28-year-old’s death, was arrested on suspicion of suppressing evidence from witnesses and allowing key suspects to flee the country.
Beautiful, 28 year old, Samia Shahid, was found dead in the house of her first husband, Shakeel Ahmed, on July 20th. Her family claimed she died of natural causes. Her relatives told the police that she had had a heart attack.
A post-mortem showed she had been strangled, most likely in an Honor Killing
Shahid’s uncle was taken into custody for trying to cover up the murder.
Shahid’s former husband (and first cousin) was held on suspicion of murder and rape and eventually confessed to strangling Samia to death, with her own scarf, for FAMILY HONOR.
Samia’s father, Chaudhary Shahid, has also been remanded on suspicion of having been an accessory to his own daughter’s murder. He is accused of having lured his daughter to Pakistan under false pretenses. He claimed to be seriously ill, knowing that if she came to him, she would be walking straight toward her own death.
Samia’s second husband, Syed Mukhtar Kazam, believes his wife was killed in a so-called honor killing. He said that her family disapproved of their marriage.
The slain woman’s mother and sister are believed to have left Pakistan and are now wanted by police for questioning in Samia’s murder.
Hundreds of women are murdered by relatives in the conservative Muslim nation every year on the pretext of defending family honor
