18-year old girl survives being shot twice & thrown in a canal by her family for marrying man she loved (GRAPHIC PHOTOS)


Barely a month after a Pakistani woman was stoned to death by her family for marrying a man she loved, a teenager survived after she was shot twice and thrown in a canal by her family for marrying the man she loved. Saba Maqsood was attacked by her father, uncle, brother and aunt before she was tossed into the canal.
A police spokesman,Ali Akbar told Reuters

    The victim, Saba ... married her neighbour Muhammad Qaiser for love five days ago against the wishes of her family.They took her to Hafizabad, shot her twice and threw her in the canal after putting her in a sack, presuming that she was dead.'Her relatives fled the scene, and after minutes in the water she regained consciousness and struggled to the bank, where passers-by helped her. She is a brave girl. She came out of the canal and approached a nearby fuel station from where a rescue team rushed her to hospital.

Mr Akbar said he had recorded a statement from Ms Maqsood in which she blamed her family for the attack...She said:

    'I was tortured and shot by my father Maqsood Ahmad, brother Faisal Maqsood, uncle Ashfaq Ahmad and his wife Sajida Bibi. Her condition is out of danger and we have registered a case against her family on her complaint.'

Police had raided her father's home in the nearby city of Gujranwala but all the suspects had disappeared.
