the killing. Reports indicate that he informed his family members that he had killed his
daughter and also disclosed the location where her body could be found.

This event once again draws attention to the social and cultural issues related to
women’s rights in migrant communities and underscores the need for serious and
coordinated efforts to combat such crimes.
