She was beaten with clubs by her brothers because she wore pants. She registered a case against them and her brother (a cop) shot her to death for not withdrawing the complaint. Her life was made a living hell by her devout Muslim family, which was adhering to the honor code of the Sharia. The murder was the final act.
And the Islamic government sanctions honor violence. One brother hasn't even been arrested.
