A young man’s eyes were allegedly gouged out by his family just because he wanted to marry a woman of his choice, Metro UK report.

Abdul Baqi, 22, from Nasirabad village in Pakistan’s Balochistan province, told his family about his intentions to marry his girlfriend and asked them to take an engagement proposal to her house.

But the news did not go down well with his father and brothers. His 70-year-old father Dost Muhammmad and four brothers – Abdul Ghani, Abdul Sattar, Abdul Rehman and Abdul Karim – allegedly held him in a room and gouged his eyes out of their sockets.

They reportedly locked his mother in another room so that she could not intervene and save her son.

From his beside in Jinnah Post Graduate Medical Centre in Karachi, Baqi said: ‘I requested my father and brothers that I want to marry a girl I have been in relationship with.

‘My father agreed first. But, three hours later I was taken to a room by my father and four brothers where they tied me to a bed and started taking out my eyes.

‘I kept shouting at them what were they doing? But they didn’t listen to my pleas.’

Baqi said his father used the back of a spoon to take out his first eye, before taking out a knife to cut out the veins.

‘I saw my eye dangling out of the socket,’ he said.

Despite his cries to leave him alone, he said they took out his other one. He added: ‘After they finished, I pleaded to them to please kill me now but they replied they want me be an example for other boys in the village.’

He was rushed to hospital by his other siblings, where doctors told him he would never see him again.

His brother Abdul Gaffar, 24, said: ‘I was not at home when the incident happened. I received a call from my neighbour that something is wrong at your home.

‘I immediately rushed home and I was shocked to see my brother crying in pain.’

Police have arrested Baqi’s father and two brothers, and are searching for his other two brothers who remain at large.
