Two Pakistani women were allegedly killed by their respective families after a video which showed them both kissed by a man went viral.

The alleged double honor killing happened on Thursday, according to CBS. The incident took place in a northwestern district near the Afghan border. The authorities claim the video is the motive behind the crime. 

One of the accused murderers is the father of the victim. The other accused is the brother of the other victim. Murderers were taken in custody and are awaiting trial according to the CBS article.

According to the police official, both women were gunned down and buried by the family members. 

The viral video was apparently shot almost a year ago but went viral on social media just a few weeks ago, says the article.

Furthermore, according to the BBC, the man who kissed both women was recently arrested.
