Two teenage sisters, 16 year old Noor Basra and 15 year old Noor Sheza (both pictured above) were shot dead at their home in the town of Chilas, in Pakistan after a video showing the two girls laughing and dancing in the rain was circulated via mobile phones.
Apparently dancing with your sibling in the rain and filming it is a crime punishable by death in the Northern region of Gilgit. The video caused an outrage in the town and a few days later, five men invaded the girls home and shot them dead – for – wait for it – ‘tarnishing their family’s name’. Their mother was also shot dead.
The girls’ step-brother, a man named Khutore, is being accused of arranging their murder because he allegedly wanted to ‘restore the family’s honour’. The sisters’ other brother filed a case against him and the four other alleged accomplices who are now on the run. The police are investigating the case.
