13-year-old Naghma attempted running away with two young men, who later abandoned her during the journey "out of fear"... leaving her to face her unfortunate fate.
... She was later taken into custody by the security forces and released on bail upon assurance by the girl's relatives that they would not kill her...
If only the security forces had known what would have happened next, they shouldn't have released her;
Naghma's relatives shot her dead three days later...
...and silently buried her body in a local graveyard.
As for the two young men who are currently under arrest, fears that they would be executed abound;
...the boys' relatives will make every effort to secure their freedom, but it is possible that they too will be killed on the jirga's orders.
A massacre is currently going on in Pakistan;
...Hundreds of women are murdered every year in Pakistan, often by their own relatives,
The worst part of it all is that there are no signs of the killings reducing instead there is an escalation;
...there has been a 70 per cent increase in honour killings in the past year.
The life of a woman in Pakistan is best described as an 'existence' not a 'life.'
