Alleged 'honour killing' of Indian Muslim teen

Wednesday, July 26, 2017 • Common Comments

Two men have been charged with kidnapping, raping and murdering a 19-year-old Indian Muslim teen in the UK. The issue came to light when a woman, hospitalized with a slit throat, informed the police.

The prosecutor alleged that it was a case of honour killing as the Indian teen was involved in a relationship with an Arab Muslim, of which the girl’s family didn’t approve. Two women were kidnapped in this case; the Indian teen was only one killed. Mujahid Arshid, charged with murder, rape and kidnap, and Vicent Tappu, charged with kidnap, are said to have been employed by the girl’s family to commit the ‘honour killing’. The two await trial in UK courts.
