‘Friendship’ costs girl life

LAHORE: A 23-year-old girl was stabbed to death during a scuffle among her three male friends in the Garden Town police area late on Friday.

The deceased was identified as Noorul Sabah a resident of Joray Pull. After doing her BA (Honours) from the Forman Christian College University, Sabah was working as a marketing employee in a local company at Metro Plaza in Garden Town.

Investigation Officer ASI Muhammad Khan said three years ago, Sabah had developed illicit relations with Farhan, a car dealer from a rich family. “She was also in relationship with two other well-off boys Ahmed and Nadeem.’’

The investigation officer said Sabah met Farhan three days ago and developed differences with him over an issue. She asked Ahmed and Nadeem to tackle Farhan because he was harassing her with text messages and phone calls.
“At 11:30pm, Sabah visited Farhan at Aurangzeb Block in Garden Town along with Ahmed and Nadeem. The boys stabbed her after coming to know that the girl was flirting with them,” he disclosed.
Khan said Farhan shifted her to the Jinnah Hospital where she died. On this, he attempted to flee but the police and the hospital administration apprehended him.

Sabah’s father Muhammad Siddique Asghar said his daughter was working with a marketing company in Garden Town. He alleged that Farhan, Nadeem and Ahmed had killed her.

“Sabah phoned her family at 10:30pm and told them that she was coming back to home. “Later, we called her at 11:25pm but did not get any response,” said Asghar, adding the police informed them that she was killed under mysterious circumstances.

He made an appeal to authorities concerned to bring the culprits to book. Later, the body was shifted to morgue for autopsy. Police have registered a case against the three boys and started investigation.
