17 Year Old Bride Murdered On Wedding Night For Not Being A Virgin

A bride was strangled to the death by her husband on the night of their wedding in a suspected case of ‘honour killing’, Jacobabad police said on Saturday.

During the day, a picture of the deceased bride made rounds on social media and suggested that the young girl was killed by her husband for “not being a virgin”.
Khanzadi, daughter of Lal Mohammad Lashari, married her cousin Qalandar Bux Khokhar the night before her lifeless body was found in her bedroom. The suspect, her husband, remains on the run. 

Khanzadi’s mother notified the police when she failed to receive any response from their house the morning after the wedding.

Policemen, with the help of the victim’s brother Ali Sher Lashari, forced entry into the house, only to discover Khanzadi’s lifeless body on the bed. Her husband was missing.

Ali Sher lodged a complaint against the groom and his four brothers, accusing them of strangulating his sister to death.

The victim’s mother told reporters that Qalandar Bux and Khanzadi were cousins and the marriage took place with their consent.

Sources in the area speculated that Qalandar Bux killed the bride because she was “not a virgin”, while others claim that a heated argument erupted between the newly-wed couple regarding a delay in the wedding ceremony due to certain customs, Express Tribune reports.
