A father has killed his own daughter and her alleged friend in Sindh in the name of honour.

The police in Jamshoro has arrested two suspects in connection with the incident and a heavy contingent of forces have been deployed in the area to avoid any untoward incident.

In 2022, a report stated that at least 217 people, including 152 women, have been killed in so-called honour-related crimes across Sindh.



Hundreds of women are killed each year in Pakistan by family members over perceived loss of “honour”.

Many human rights activists have raised alarms over the issue and while numerous laws have been passed to prevent honour killing, the numbers continue to get higher which each passing year.
