Kanwal Parveen was a resident of 104 North village in Sargodha and had married out of her own free will 10 years ago, something that was never accepted by her family.
The victim’s family invited her to celebrate the birth of her nephew at their home when her other nephew, a nine-year-old boy shot her dead for honor on the instructions of the family.
According to Saddar police station house officer (SHO) said in a statement about the incident:
It is very likely that his family informed him about his aunt and how she opted to marry by her choice. That’s why, the boy shot his aunt dead
This is truly a tragic incident of honor killing and the parents of the boy deserved to be punished with the maximum extent of the law not only for the murder of Kanwal Parveen but using a nine-year-old boy to commit such an atrocity.
