LAHORE: A 23-year-old woman was found dead under mysterious circumstances at her home in Tajpura on Sunday.
The police shifted the body for autopsy after suspecting that the victim was hit by a bullet.
The police were called to a house by Falaksher who claimed that his daughter, Nadia, had shot herself in the head. The police seized the body and lifted forensic evidence. A police investigator said the victim received a bullet in the head from left side and the bullet came out of the head from right side, which showed that the woman did not shoot herself.
He said circumstantial evidence suggested that the girl was asleep at the time of shooting and that the empty shell was recovered beside the body on the bed.
The investigator further said the pistol was the property of a friend of the victim’s brother. He said the police would wait for the outcome of autopsy report to initiate further action. He said no one from family was taken into custody for the time being as the police initially believed in what the family stated.
