Body of woman murdered over love marriage

Karachi: The body of a young woman who was killed allegedly by her family members for marrying against their will was exhumed by a medical team on Wednesday after Malir Judicial Magistrate (6th) Muhammad Aslam Shaikh ordered a fresh inquiry into the murder.

The inquiry team, headed by Shaikh, comprises members Dow Medical College professor Farhat Hussain Mirza, Police Surgeon Hamid Paryar, Additional Police Surgeon Civil Hospital Karar Abbasi, Civil Hospital MLOs Saadat Fatima and Dr Abdul Haq. The medical board has collected her viscera for a chemical examination.

Twenty-five-year-old Nasreen, daughter of Wali Khan, was shot dead allegedly by her brothers and a brother-in-law on March 25.

Acting on a tip-off, police arrested the brother-in-law, Abdul Saeed, who confessed to the killing during the interrogation.

It was found that Nasreen had married her lover without her family’s consent, which angered both her brothers and brother-in-law, who then killed her at Saeed’s residence. She suffered six bullet injuries. The accused buried her in the Mullah Madad graveyard in the Quaidabad police limits. The police claimed that the woman worked in a bank. She hailed from Peshawar.
