Nageena and Nadeem eloped in January and were brought back to Waqas’ house after reconciliation, where they were murdered. Nadeem’s family claimed that Nageena’s brothers were trying to kill the couple ever since they had contracted marriage. By asking Nageena and Nadeem to move to Waqas’s house, presented to them as dowry, the brothers got a chance to take revenge and hence they killed the couple, said Nageena’s family. This was the fourth incident of honour killing in Saddar Division since June 09.
