The body of a 24-year-old woman has been found after she was stoned to death in an honour killing in Pakistan.

National Highway and Motorway Police found a mutilated body with severe head injuries near the Indus Highway on June 27.

Local police were able to identify the body of that of Waziran who lived in the village of Wadda Chachar.

It is believed the woman, Waziran, had been pelted with stones and repeatedly hit with a wooden stick in Jamshoro and police are treating her death as an honour killing.


Sindh Police say that the woman’s father, Gurl Muhammed initially testified that her death had been an accident but later retracted his statement, alleging that she had been killed by her husband Allah Baksh and his brother Kareem.


He has been seen crying for justice beside his daughter’s grave.

Both men have been arrested and remain in police custody.

In a statement, Allah Baksh alleges that her own family were responsible for the stoning because they did not approve of Waziran’s decision to marry him.

A three-man joint investigation team are looking continue to investigate the incident.
