Two Spanish national sisters of Pakistani descent were murdered in Gulliana police precincts by their paternal uncle for failing to bring their spouses to Spain, reports Dawn.

Arooj Abbas and Aneesa Abbas, both 21, were married to their cousins in Pakistan more than a year ago, but they were unable to obtain visas for their husbands to join them in Spain.

Their in-laws suspected them of delaying their husbands’ immigration applications on purpose.
