I am surprised how can a father butchers his own daughter!! Alas are we returning back to the age of Ignorance. Although the details of the case are yet to come but still, act of murdering someone particularly daughter is inhuman act. That man must have been psycho or drug addict because someone in senses can not commit such heinous crime. The reasons are unknown for killing newly wed daughter. However in Pakistani Society intolerance has increased manifold. And it can be assumed that some domestic issue led to the ruthless killing of the girl.
I beg the state law enforcement agencies to look into the matter and culprit must be punished in accordance with law.
