A bride was reportedly strangled to death by her groom on the night of their wedding because he suspected that she wasn’t a virgin.
The Pakistani woman married her cousin the day before her body was found in her bedroom, and the groom fled the scene after killing her. Police forced their way into the woman’s home, where they discovered her on the bed.
The mother of the bride called the police when she tried to call her daughter the morning after the wedding and received no response.
The death was referred to by many as an “honor killing,” which is carried out by husbands who have reason to believe their wives were not virgins before they married.
