woman in veilIt is found that Hanan Al-Shahry, a Saudi citizen in Muhail Asir, committed suicide last month after her brother did not allow her to marry her fiance, reported Akhbaar24.

It is reported that her brother and uncle had mistreated her after Hanan’s father passed away. Her brother also refused to marry her off despite the fact that her uncle already received dowry from her fiance.

A close relative of Hanan explained that the girl set her body on fire after drinking petrol. She was found alive with serious burns on her kitchen floor. She was quickly taken to the hospital. However, she succumbed to her injuries later.

The women’s department at the Human Rights Commission in Asir has taken up the case. They said that  they would issue a statement about the case soon.
