LAHORE A love-marriage couple was slaughtered by their relatives in the Hanjerwal police area in the wee hours of Tuesday. The deceased were identified as Nadeem Akhtar, 27, and Nageena Malik, 22. Both were the residents of Tilagang. The police investigators, however, believed that the couple was killed by the girls brothers, who had been searching for her for the last eight months. She had eloped with one Nadeem, and they came to Lahore from their native village. The family of the girl, somehow, managed to make the heirs to the boy believe that the couple will not be harmed. They also took oath on the holy Quran not to kill them, the police added. A meeting was also arranged at the house of an influential citizen in Lahore a few days back.
