A Muslim woman allegedly shot in the throat by her brother survived after the bullet struck a metal locket that she was wearing round her neck.
The incident happened when Mohammad Nayeem reportedly hatched a plan to kill his sister Shabnam and armed himself with a gun to avenge the family’s honour after she decided to marry for love.
In doing so she rejected her family’s wish for an arranged marriage, causing what they felt was damage to their honour that could only be cured by her death.
