SWAT, 10 January: A 24-year-old woman has been killed in the name of honour in Swat.

Station House Officer (SHO) of Matta Police Station, Bakht Zada told TNN that a married woman, Zeenat Bibi, was shot dead in her house in Matta Biakan village on Monday. Hakeem Zada, father of the woman, said her husband is a labourer in Saudi Arabia, and he got his wife killed by someone in the name of honour. He said someone had changed the photographs of his daughter and sent these photos to her husband which enraged him. He said his daughter was killed on allegations of having illicit relations with someone.

Police said the murder was the outcome of family dispute and investigation into the case is underway.

According to The Awakening, an organisation working for women rights, 50 women were killed in the name of honour in Swat last year. The murder of Zeenat Bibi is the first such incident in 2017.
