2 Girls Executed for Marrying Men of the Their Choice

SHIKARPUR, Pakistan: Two more innocent girls fell prey to the male barbarism in the upper Sindh under the illegal practice of Karo-kari (honor killing).

Two girls were murdered couple of weeks ago in the name of Karo-kari over marrying guys of their own choosing. The jirga (a court of elders) in its judgment ordered the boys to pay a fine of Rs2.4 million each to escape meeting the same fate.

The jirga was presided over by Ghaus Bux Mehar, an MNA of Pakistan Muslim League-Functional (PML-F). Taking notice of the same, DIG Larkana Khalid Rind has formed an investigation team headed by ASP City Kamran Nawaz.

The jirga declared the girls from Mehar community Kari and boys from Jagirani tribe Karo for marrying according to their own will.
