Islamabad: A sensational case related to honour killings has come to light in Pakistan. A daughter was reportedly married against her father's wishes. Angry Pakistani man Manzoor Hussain burnt seven members of his family alive, including his two daughters and four grandchildren. Hussain is a resident of the Muzaffargarh district of Pakistan's Punjab province. According to reports, His daughters Fauzia, Bibi and Khurshid were living with their families in Manzoor's house. Four of her minor children, including Bibi, her newborn son, died due to burn injuries in the fire.
Bibi's husband Mehboob Ahmed, who survived the attack, had lodged a police complaint against his father-in-law Manzoor Hussain and his son Sabir Hussain. Mehboob told the police, 'I went to Multan to do business. When he returned, he saw flames rising from the house. From there I saw two men, Manzoor Hussain and his son Sabir Hussain, running away. Police officer Abdul Majid told the media that the incident took place due to enmity between the two families due to love marriage.'
The police have started searching for the two accused on the basis of a complaint. In his statement to the police, Mehboob Ahmed said that he and Bibi had married in 2020 against the wishes of Manzoor Hussain. Manzoor was very angry about it. He didn't like this marriage. This led him to conspire to kill seven members of the house.
