Did Chaudhry Rashid kill his 25-year-old daughter because she wanted out of an arranged marriage? Police in Clayton County, Georgia (south of Atlanta) say Rashid used a bungee cord to strangle her. But the Pakistani man was crying in court today when he told the judge he did nothing wrong. His wife called police Sunday morning after she heard screams. Their daughter, Kanwal, was found murdered in her bedroom. She recently got married in Pakistan in an arranged marriage. Police say her new husband is living in Chicago, but Kanwal stayed at her father's home. According to the police report, "The victim was not interested in marrying, nor remaining married to her husband. That information came from Rashid's wife. The report also mentions that the marriage was causing a "great deal of friction" between Rashid and his daughter. It says they hadn't spoken in two months. At the scene of the crime, when police asked Rashid how his daughter died he didn't not answer. According to the report, "He just dropped his head." Was this an honor killing? We'd love to hear your thoughts on the case?
