Five men allegedly shaved off the hair and eyebrows of a young woman and paraded her in the streets of a village in Pakistan's Punjab province, police officials said today.
The incident occurred yesterday in Layyah district, 350 km from Lahore, after the married woman was accused of having "illicit" relations with a man.
According to an FIR registered by police, Parveen Bibi, 25, the wife of Sabir Husain, had a quarrel with her sisters-in-law.
Yesterday, her brothers-in-law Muhammad Pervaiz and Muhammad Zafar and three other men shaved off her hair and eyebrows. They then blackened her face and paraded her through the streets of their village.
Police arrested Parveen's sisters-in-law and a man named Muhammad. The woman's brothers-in-law are still at large.
Shafiq told police that Parveen had developed "illicit" relations with a man in her neighbourhood.
"We stopped her from meeting him but she continued seeing him," Shafiq, who is related to Parveen, told the police.
