A young Pakistani man’s eyes were gouged with a spoon by his own father because he wanted to marry a woman of his own choice. Abdul Baqi, 22, from Nasirabad, in the Balochistan region of the country, told his parents on Saturday that he wanted to propose to his girlfriend.
But shortly after the meeting, Baqi was attacked by his dad, Dost Muhammmad, 70, and his four brothers.
The group held the man down and gouged out both of his eyes from their sockets with a spoon and cut the veins with a knife. They locked his mother in another room so that she could not intervene and save her son. The man’s father and two brothers have been arrested while police are still hunting his other two siblings.
