The man was upset over his sister's secret marriage and in a fit of rage shot 19-year-old Motia Bibi, reports said.

She spoke of her secret marriage following her family's pressure to accept another man.

On Thursday, her brother asked the reason behind her refusal to get married and took her to a separate room. She told him she had married secretly.

A short while later, gunfire was heard and the family members went into the room only to find the girl lying in a pool of blood.
