UBAURO: In an appalling incident, a man’s nose and an ear was cut off on charges of “honour” in a district of northern Sindh, ARY News reported on Tuesday.
The incident occurred in a native village of Ubauro where a man, Ghulam Mustafa, was accused of assaulting another man with the help of two friends. The man who was thrashed was identified as Ali Nawaz, resident of the same district.
Mustafa had accused Nawaz year ago of “honour” killing. But Nawaz was soon exempted from charges after clarifying his position before the kangaroo court (panchayat).
Mustafa, however, was determined to avenge and after an year he tortured Nawaz to an extent that he cut off his nose and ear.
Police arrested the miscreant Mustafa, but his two accomplices were absconding.
The pathetic practice of killing or torturing somebody to settle personal disputes in the name of honour is common in rural areas.
