A 19-year-old lady has been sentenced to death by stoning after she was allegedly accused of Adultery because she said that she had been r*ped at gun point in her family home in Rajanpur, Pakistan, by her cousin.
The tribal elders, including the alleged rapist’s father, believed that she had deliberately seduced her attacker and so sentenced her to death by stoning or for her to be sold off, according to the Hindustan Times.
They also ruled that no action should be taken against the attacker, declaring that she was ‘Kari’, meaning that she was an adulteress.
She said that she was asleep with her family on Friday night when her cousin sneaked inside her house and r*ped her and she could not scream for help because he held a gun to her.
She then sought help with her uncle who took her to police to inform them of the rape and the unofficial court ruling.
According to the Tribune, Four of the tribal elders – including the alleged rapist’s father – are now being held for their involvement in the unofficial court, after they ruled that the victim should be killed.
