Her family had initially said that she had committed suicide

A woman and her cousin were killed for taking a selfie together. 

The deceased’s mother registered a case, after which the woman’s’ father, Abdul Hakeem, and grandfather, Abdul Raheem, were arrested. The woman, identified as Marina, was poisoned to death in Karachi’s Qasba Colony, while her cousin, Salman, was killed in Swat.

The police have touted it to be a case of honour killing. The investigation authorities have ordered the exhumation of the deceased’s remains.

The victim’s mother is not willing to cooperate with the police anymore, said the investigating officer. Three relatives are absconding.
