Young Couple Poisoned By Family

From Tribune:
The bodies of a young couple, wedded four months ago in an arranged marriage ceremony, were found at their home in Lahore’s Raiwind area early Tuesday morning.

The deceased, identified as 23-year-old Basharat and 21-year-old Amna, were allegedly being poisoned by the bride’s family. Although their bodies bore no marks of torture that could imply any foul play, Basharat’s family say the couple was poisoned to death by Amna’s parents.

Local police reached the incident site and shifted the bodies to a morgue for autopsy. Police said the cause of their death has not yet been ascertained, adding that the autopsy could help reveal the mystery behind the couple’s death.

Last year in June, a 17-year-old girl, her husband and another man were shot and killed by her father following an argument.

Police said the deceased girl and her husband were residents of Abdullah Pura. The third man was as her parent’s neighbour who had apparently facilitated the marriage.

The FIR registered on a complaint filed by a relative of the third deceased stated that the couple had gotten married a year ago against the wishes of the girl’s parents. It said she was the third wife of the man.
