A Pakistani woman has been killed by her relatives outside Lahore High Court for marrying against their wishes.
Police said 30-year old Farzana Bibi died on the spot after being attacked with bricks and sticks.
Farzana Bibi’s parents accused her husband, Muhammad Iqbal, of kidnapping her, and had filed a case against him at the High Court.
However, she testified to police that she had married him of her own accord. Police said the couple had been engaged for a number of years.
As she arrived at the court building for a hearing, police said about a dozen family members pulled her aside and began to attack her and her husband, who managed to escape.
What a lovely “family.”
