A Pakistani woman who was reportedly shot dead for refusing a marriage proposal was filmed identifying her killer shortly before she died on Sunday evening.
BuzzFeed News reports that Asma Rani, a third-year medical student at Abbotabad Ayub Medical College, was shot by two men on Jan. 27 outside of her home in Kohat, northern Pakistan, after she stepped out of a rickshaw with her sister-in-law.
As she lay dying, Rani was reportedly filmed naming Mujahid Afridi as her killer. The young woman’s family claims that Afridi, along with his brother, Sadiqullah Afridi, killed Rani after she refused to marry him.
One day after her death, the graphic video of Rani naming her attacker was posted to social media, where it began trending with the hashtag #JusticeForAsmaRani.
Police arrested Sadiqullah Afridi following the attack, but it is believed that Mujahid Afridi may have fled the country on a flight to Saudi Arabia on Monday.
