The heartbroken brother of Pakistan’s latest ‘honour killing’ victim – burned alive because she left the house without permission – said he will set himself alight if he does not get justice.
Shabana Bibi, 25, from the Muzaffargarh district of the country, died in hospital on Saturday after suffering burns to 80 per cent of her body.
Police have arrested her husband Muhammad Siddique and father-in-law Pir Bakhsh.
Bibi’s brother, Muhammad Azam said Siddique became enraged on learning his wife had visited her sister without first asking him if she could go out.
His father then beat Bibi before dousing her with petrol on April 17, Azam added.
Bibi had been married to Siddique for three years, during which time she had suffered repeated domestic abuse because the couple couldn’t have children, her brother explained.
However, Azam says police believe Bibi committed suicide, despite the arrests.
He also said police have not provided him with a copy of the crime report despite repeated requests.
