Running out on an arranged marriage can cost you your life.
Chaudhry Rashid, a resident of Jonesboro, outside of Atlanta is facing charges of murder in the death of his daughter, Sandeela Kanwal.
Kanwal was found dead in the parents’ home, according to the report of authorities.
Rashid’s wife said that the victim was married by arrangement in Pakistan. The husband was residing in Chicago, Illinois but Kanwal stayed at her father’s home and worked in Atlanta for a short time.
She and the father had argued over the the fact that the marriage was arranged, and violence ensued at a later point and she was killed.
No one knows how often these murders take place because they are a matter of honor in some societies and are kept very secret and quiet.
