KARACHI: A man charged with killing his sister on International Women’s Day on March 8, 2008, over a matrimonial dispute was granted bail by District and Sessions Judge West Zakir Hussain on Saturday against a solvent surety of Rs 100,000. Niamat Ali Randhawa advocate represented the accused, who was booked under section 302 PPC by the Pirabad Police.
According to SHO Rustam Khattak, 21-year-old Saba was killed by her brother Waqar with the help of her mother and sister. Saba fell in love with 18-year-old Mohsin who used to come to the coaching centre that she opened up after she did her Intermediate exams. Her family did not allow her to pursue a higher degree. Mohsin came to study at the centre she opened on the top floor of her house.
Both families came to know of the matter and Mohsin’s family did not agree to marriage with an “outsider”. Mohsin vacillated. Saba’s family sent her to the Punjab but she returned after a few days. She tried to elope but was caught out and grounded. They later killed her.
Her family attempted to make the incident look like a robbery and told the 15 police unidentified people had shot her and taken off with 0.4 million rupees. When the police arrived at the scene, the family changed its statement and said she committed suicide because Mohsin was going to marry someone else. But the police were suspicious as she could not have shot herself with the gun in her left hand.
