A 51-year-old man in Tehran killed his 21-year-old daughter because she intended to live alone and independently. Motivated by alleged honor concerns, he confessed to the crime and turned himself in to the nearby police station after the act.

The suspect revealed that his daughter had previously entered into a marriage contract with another man, and due to conflicts, they separated. Eventually, she began a single life eight months ago, a decision vehemently opposed by the father due to societal judgment and fears.
