The body of a 24-year-old woman was found after she was stoned to death for an honor murder in Pakistan.
The National Highway and Motorway Police found a mutilated body with serious head injuries near the Indus Highway on June 27.
The local police were able to identify the body of that of Waziran who lived in the village of Wadda Chachar.
It is believed that the woman, Waziran, was pelted with stones and beaten repeatedly with a wooden stick in Jamshoro, and the police consider her death an honor killing.

Sindh police say the woman’s father, Gurl Muhammed, initially testified that her death had been an accident, but later retracted his statement alleging that she had been murdered by her husband Allah Baksh and his brother Kareem.
He has been seen crying for justice next to his daughter’s grave.
Both men have been arrested and remain in custody.
In a statement, Allah Baksh claims that her own family was responsible for the stoning because they did not approve of Waziran’s decision to marry him.
A three-person joint investigation team is looking to investigate the incident further.
