Police hunt elder
Police hunt elder was Tuesday chasing a tribal senior who requested a high school couple to be shocked by their families as discipline for eloping, in the nation’s most recent grisly “respect” killing.
The couple, individuals from the Pashtun ethnic gathering living in the southern city of Karachi, fell foul of their families in the wake of eloping a month ago. Be that as it may, police said the man’s family convinced them to return home so they could be hitched.
A tribal jirga (chamber) at that point requested the couple’s execution after the parents had put their case to the great gathering of seniors.
The couple was attached to a wooden overnight boarding house by relatives. Police said the young lady was matured 15 or 16 and the man was around 18 years of age.
AFP includes: “The (jirga) chose that the girl would be shocked by her dad and uncle and the kid by his father and uncle,” cop Amanullah Marwat told AFP, including that the families later covered the bodies in mystery.
Jirgas typically arbitrate in the collective debate in country Pakistan, particularly in the northern tribal belt, yet are uncommon in urban communities.
Police have captured the relatives behind the killings, accusing them of murder and messing with prove. However, the pioneer of the jirga who requested the killings stays on the loose.
“We are assaulting better places to capture him,” Marwat said.
