LAHORE: A couple married for four months “mysteriously” died in Raiwind city, police said on Tuesday.
Parents of 23-year-old Basharat alleged that the family of the 21-year-old bride Amna poisoned their food, resulting in their death.
Police said that the two were married with their parents’ consent.
In August, a teenage couple accused of violating the Pashtun ‘code of honour’ was killed with electric shocks in Karachi.
The murders were executed by family members on the orders of a jirga of elders of the Mohmand tribe.
