"They had not even been allowing Shirin to come to visit our father's house. Shirin informed me over the phone that her husband had beaten her. We rushed there after the call. Arriving at the scene we found my sister’s body lying on the floor.
"Shahin's mother Saleha said Shirin had committed suicide after locking her room's door from the inside," said Sultana adding that she believes that Shirin was murdered.
