The barbaric practice of honour killing based upon obsolete values and traditions claimed another life, as a man was brutally killed and his wife kidnapped in Ghotki only because they had married according to their own choice, reported 24NewsHD TV channel on Friday.

The barbaric act was committed in the Murid Shakh area of Ghotki, as Ashiq Khokar and Haseena were going to Sukkur from Sadiqabad on a rickshaw because of the fear of being murdered. They had tied knot against the will of Haseena’s family two months ago.
