He had been taunted by co-workers who had seen Tasleem in their neighborhood with the man.
While being held by police, Muheeb said he had demanded that his sister swear on the Quran that she would never marry the man.
He said: ‘I told her I would have no face to show at the mill, to show to my neighbors, so don’t do it. Don’t do it. But she wouldn’t listen.
