The incident took place on Tuesday in Muzaffarghar, 400 km from Lahore, when the two men allegedly abducted their sister and gouged out her eyes with a sharp knife and cut off her feet, police said.

The woman has been shifted to Nishtar Hospital in Multan where her condition is said to be critical.

Police said one of the brothers had earlier registered an FIR against the woman, who is in her 40s, for allegedly kidnapping his daughter.

The victim’s daughter told the Express Tribune that her uncle along with one of his brothers committed the heinous crime to take revenge on her mother for the disappearance of his daughter.

Police said a case has been registered against the accused but no arrests have been made so far.
