A 19 -year - old woman has been sentenced to death by village elders in Pakistan ’ s Punjab province for allegedly having an illicit relationship with her cousin after she accused him of raping her at gunpoint .

In step with hindustimes, the incident took place on friday in rajanpur, a rural district about 400 kilometres from provincial capital lahore.Shumaila was said to have escaped from the village after she came to know of the panchayat’ s decision and reported the matter to police .

The woman has denied having any illicit relationship with her cousin Khalil Ahmed and alleged that he raped her at gunpoint when she was sleeping at her house .

“I could not raise an alarm as Ahmed was holding a gun . But the panchayat refused to accept my statement and declared that I wilfully slept with him , ” she told the police .

She said the panchayat did not take action against Ahmed .

“We have registered a FIR against the panchayat members and will take them into custody for declaring her kaari ( liable to death either by stoning or else ) , ” Hasnain said.

The SHO of Fazilpur Police Station , Qaisar Hasnain , said Shumaila ’ s father said in a statement that he was forced to accept the panchayat’ s decision .
