Islamabad: A young girl was allegedly murdered in the federal capital for honour by her father.
The Khanna police said that according to Akhtar Jabeen, she had married Muhammad Younus of Chakwal and had borne him a son and two daughters. They lived in Bilal town.
However, she said that she had divorced Younus because he used to regularly beat her. She had subsequently married another man 14 years ago.
One day, her son called her and told her that his sister G* had allegedly been murdered by his father for honour.
As soon as she heard this, she quickly left for her home in Bilal Town. When she arrived there, she was told that the girl’s body had been taken to Younus’ village in Chakwal for burial.
However, she managed to catch up to her ex-husband who allowed her to see her daughter’s face one last time before he hurriedly left with the body for Chakwal.
Jabeen later lodged a complaint with the police for murder. Police have registered a case against the suspect but the homicide unit of Islamabad Police has not yet made any progress in the case, nor have they managed to arrest the suspect thus far.
