A tribal woman was allegedly killed by her husband in the name of 'honour in the limits of Chucha Border Military Police (BMP) station in the tribal area of Rajanpur district in Pakistan recently.

Local sources told Dawn News the woman, accused of having relations with a man, was allegedly killed by her husband, her brother-in-law and their accomplice, who smashed her head with stones and clubs.

She succumbed to her injuries immediately.

The attacker managed to flee from the spot.

The BMP in Chucha tribal area has filed a case against the suspects under different sections of the Pakistan Penal Code, including 302 (murder), 148 (rioting armed with deadly weapon), 149 (unlawful assembly), and 311 (punishment for murder if act taking place in order to facilitate the commission of a crime), reports Dawn News.

According to the sources, some two years ago, the woman had undergone a tribal ritual locally called Aus (trial by fire ) Auf (trial by water), wherein an accused person walks on burning coals to prove his or her innocence or remains underwater, till the length of the breath.

They said the woman had successfully walked on burning coals without suffering burns on her feet, thus proving her innocence.

Political Assistant Qasim Gill confirmed to Dawn News that the married woman was clubbed and stoned to death by her husband, brother-in-law and their accomplice over honour, adding that BMP teams are conducting raids to apprehend the fleeing suspects.
