"Police have arrested a mother and father in Kashmir for allegedly murdering their teenage daughter by throwing acid on her in an honour killing.

Anosh Zafar, 16, was attacked after her father, Mohammed Zafar, saw her 'standing close' to a boy, police claimed.It is said to be the first of its kind in the Pakistani-administered region, although they are commonplace across Pakistan.

Police officer Imtiaz Ali claims Mr Zafar and his wife confessed to killing the girl because they believed she had sullied the family's honour. The couple was arrested on Tuesday and an autopsy confirmed that the girl died of acid burns, according to local government official Masood-ur-Rehman.

Police say the couple's eldest daughter brought the case, which took place in a small village in the southern district of Kotli, to their attention."* Cenk Uygur and Ana Kasparian discuss the story, showing their disgust for the parents for believing in so-called 'honor' and dogma so much that they would horribly kill their own daughter over the simple act of talking to a boy.
