Circumstance: A 14-year-old Pakistani Christian girl called Mehwish was hired by a Muslim family to help at an evening party in March. She never returned. Her father Tanveer went several times to the house to ask for her and eventually in May reported her disappearance to the police, naming three Muslims as her abductors. He then began to be harassed and intimidated by the family, but refused to withdraw his complaint. Then the Muslims told him they would settle the dispute privately if he withdrew the complaint. Tanveer did so and then set off to meet the Muslims on the agreed date. Two men shot him dead.
