Girl Paraded Naked For Brother's 'Relationship With Girl' In Pakistan

IANS, 31 Oct, 2017
  • Girl Paraded Naked For Brother's 'Relationship With Girl' In Pakistan
In a horrific incident, a teenage girl was forcibly stripped and paraded naked for an hour in Pakistan's Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa province as "punishment" - because her brother had been in a relationship with a girl.
 
The incident took place in Dera Ismail Khan's Matt area on October 27, Geo TV reported.
 
The 16-year-old girl was returning home after fetching water when some men surrounded her, stripped her and made her walk in the locality. Witnesses said nobody came to her help because they were scared.
 
Her brother, Sajjad, was involved in a relationship with a girl from the village three years ago. The village council had then fined Sajjad's family Rs 105,000 to resolve the matter.
 
But somehow some villagers held a grouse against Sajjad's family and decided to "punish" his sister instead.
 
The police told Geo News that eight suspects had been arrested but the prime suspect was on the run.
 
Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa Chief Minister Pervaiz Khattak has ordered the provincial police chief to book the culprits.
