Body of Italian woman exhumed for autopsy

Police in Gujrat on Tuesday requested a sessions judge for permission to exhume the body of a 26-year-old Pakistani-Italian woman who was reportedly killed "for honour" by her brother and father.

Sana's death had been initially termed as an accidental death but the about honor killing details came down to light after the local police thrived their investigation towards the family as social media erupted out that Sana's death was a murder.

The father then took on board his son, Adnan Mustafa, and brother, Mazhar Iqbal, and hatched a plan to kill her, according to the report.

Cheema's family declared her death "accidental" and buried her in a graveyard far from their residence, raising suspicion.

DPO Cheema instructed Kunjah Police Station SHO Waqar Gujjar to register a case against victim's father, brother and uncle.

Sana wanted to marry an Italian man and had turned down multiple proposals from within her family.

The police have registered a case against three suspects on April 23, who are yet to be arrested. The magistrate decided the application the same day and ordered that the body be exhumed without delay.

According to the police, the girl's father, identified as Ghulam Mustafa, wanted to marry her off to his relative but Sana wanted to get married in Italy. The Italian foreign ministry said it is keeping an eye on the case. The ministry also said it is willing to cooperate with Pakistani authorities over the issue.

Almost 1,000 women are killed by relatives every year in Pakistan in so-called "honor killings" for violating conservative Pakistani traditions on love, marriage, and public behavior.

If confirmed, her case will be the second recently publicized honor killing in Punjab involving Western women of Pakistani descent.

The trial in Shahid's case is still underway but her father died past year, leaving only her ex-husband in the docks now.
