Lareeb Khan, a 19-year-old dental technician from Darmstadt, Germany was choked to death by her own father after she was caught stealing condoms to have safe sex with her boyfriend. She knew her parents wouldn’t allow her to date a guy outside their faith, and so she used to go on surreptitious dates with him.
The couple had decided to make love, and they wanted to keep it protected, but that’s when destiny interfered.
Lareeb wanted to get close to her boyfriend she used to meet secretly, but she also wanted to keep the physical intimacy safe. But the fear of being seen while buying condoms and later informed to her father by someone, forced her to steal rather than buying condoms. But thanks to her bad luck, she was caught while shoplifting and reported to the police authorities. When her father, Asadullah Khan, a Pakistani immigrant came to know about this, he was outraged by his daughter's naive crime. He was furious that his daughter's act would bring dishonor to the Khan family.
He choked her to death, while she was asleep. And why, just because she wanted to have safe sex! Asadullah Khan reported in the court that he had plans to get his daughter married to some guy in Pakistan (of course, forcefully).
At first, Shazia called her daughter a "downtrodden woman" and defended her husband's 'rational' act, but later said she was unable to do anything as everything was under her husband's control. Nida, her another 14-year-old daughter refused her mother's testimony in the court, and is now receiving therapy for the heinous treatment she'd been receiving at home. She was sent to a relative's place by her parents on the night her sister was murdered, and told the court her parents had always been physically abusive.
