In a suspected case of honour killing, a nine-year-old boy shot dead his aunt after being told by his family to commit the crime in a village in Pakistan’s Punjab province, police said on Wednesday. The incident took place on Tuesday in Chak 104-SB village in Sargodha, some 200 km from Lahore. According to police, the boy was trained by his family to operate the weapon to kill his paternal aunt. The 30-year-old victim had married a man of her choice some 10 years ago against the will of her family. However, the family had later reconciled with the woman, they said.
These barbarians sacrificed a poor woman on the altar of honor. They shattered the life of a naive boy. This evil mindset doesn't vanish with geographical relocation. Soon, such atrocities will rise in numbers in the West.
