ISLAMABAD: The Margalla police have booked a man on the charge of raping and killing his 25-year-old stepdaughter.
The mother of the deceased has also been nominated in the case.
A police official told Dawn that on May 21 a resident of E-8 complained that his daughter had committed suicide.
“When the police reached the house, the body was hanging from a ceiling fan.”
A postmortem conducted on the body at the Pakistan Institute of Medical Sciences (Pims) showed that the deceased was raped and then killed.
“So it was decided to arrest both the stepfather and mother because the latter’s statement favoured the suspect.”
The official said 10 years back the father of the deceased died after which her mother contracted second marriage.
The case was registered against the couple on the complaint of a relative of the deceased woman.
