KARACHI: The relatives of a woman were arrested Monday for reportedly murdering her in the name of ‘honour’.

According to the investigating officer, “The woman was murdered by her relatives on Aug 28 and they had buried her body in Gulshan-e-Maymar area.”

Furthermore, the officer quoted the deceased woman, Safdana’s, in-laws and said that “they killed her after hearing her speak to a man over the phone,” adding that the murder was planned with her relatives, as per which they took her to Bhittai Abad on the pretext of a “gathering and sprayed her with bullets”.
