They said she eloped with the man, after which elders of both families interfered and handed her over to her legal husband, Nawaz Ali.

However, her brother-in-law, Azam, shot her to death.

The victim's father, Rasheed Ahmed, said he was not informed about the incident, and added that her life could have been saved if she had been rushed to the hospital.

A first information report (FIR) was lodged against Azam on the charges of murder.

No arrests have been made so far. The police are conducting raids to arrest the accused, Kahna Police Duty Officer Abdul Qayyum was quoted, as saying.
