A Clayton County man faces murder charges in the strangling death of his 25-year-old daughter early Sunday over her desire to end an arranged marriage.If the authorities do not start setting up some kind of special unit to deal with these kind of crimes, they will continue to crop up in the US. It's time for the police to start focusing seriously on protecting women facing these dangers, and not caving to political correctness.
Chaudhry Rashad, 54, apparently got mad during an argument in which the victim, Sandela Kanwal, told him she wanted out of the marriage, Clayton police officer Timothy Owens said.
Authorities were called to their Utah Drive home in Jonesboro just after 3 a.m. Sunday. Kanwal lived with her father when she was not with her husband, who is in Chicago, Owens said. She hadn’t seen the husband in three months, he said.
Both Rashad and Kanwal are of Pakistani descent.
