Cops arrest guilty in stoning murder

  • It's clear that a high degree of condemnation can make a police investigation go faster. Reports suggest that cops in Lahore, Pakistan have arrested four more people in relation to the murder of Farzana Parveen. The Indian Express notes that the four people include the 25-year-old's uncle and two of her cousins. 

    Police are being pressurized to arrest the remaining killers. Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif has given the authorities a limited amount of time to get the remaining suspects into custody. 

    On another note, media reports indicate that Parveen's widower admitted to have killed his first wife so he could marry Parveen.
