Bail application denied in Samia Shahid murder case in Pakistan

A PAKISTANI court has denied bail to a man accused of murdering a Bradford woman in the country's latest so-called "honour killing."
Samia Shahid's father, Muhammad Shahid, and ex-husband, Muhammad Shakeel, are accused of killing her in July because she had divorced Shakeel and married a Shiite Muslim.
A police investigation concluded that her father stood guard while Shakeel raped her, before the two men strangled her to death.
Najful Hussain Shah, the lawyer for the deceased woman's husband, says the court rejected bail for Shahid today.
t has not yet ruled on Shakeel's request for bail.
The death of 28-year-old Ms Shahid is suspected to be the latest reported incident of so-called "honour killings" in Pakistan, where nearly 1,000 women are murdered every year for violating conservative norms on love, marriage and public behaviour.
Police have said the killing was a "premeditated, cold-blooded murder" and a government-ordered police inquiry has recommended that her ex-husband and her father be tried on charges of rape and murder.
Ms Shahid, from Mannigham, Bradford, was buried in eastern Pakistan in July after her family declared she had died of a heart attack.
But an inquiry was ordered by the Pakistan government after her second husband, Syed Mukhtar Kazam, publicly accused her family of killing her because they opposed her decision to divorce her first husband in 2014 and marry him.
The investigation concluded that she was strangled to death, and that her father had stood guard while her ex-husband raped her. After that, they killed her together, the police say.
The investigation has found that a forensic and DNA test was a perfect match, confirming the rape.
