Daughter testifies against dad in 'honor' killings
by Selim Algar
After six months in terrified hiding, a young Pakistani woman dramatically re-emerged in a Brooklyn courtroom Wednesday — tearfully confronting the father who'd forced her into a loveless arranged marriage and then allegedly gunned down her true love's father and sister after she ran away.
"He told me he would kill me," a barely audible Amina Ajmal (inset), 23, told a rapt federal jury of her father, Brooklyn cabby Mohammad Choudhry, on trial for murder conspiracy.
Wearing glasses and a white scarf over a black blouse, the shattered woman broke down in tears as she saw her father for the first time since he'd stood stern-faced before her December forced wedding in a Pakistani village.
