Teenage girl from Liaqatpur killed for marriage refusal

RAHIM YAR KHAN: A 17-year-old girl was allegedly burnt and beaten to death by her parents and relatives after she declined to marry a man chosen by her parents in a village of Liaqatpur.

According to an FIR filed by ASI Jamil Malik, he, along with constables Muhammad Shoaib, Matloob Hussain, Fida Hussain and Nazish Batool, received information while at bridge that the daughter of Atta Muhammad from the Dobai Bloach clan was murdered by her father and brothers in Mauza Miyani Icha in the name of honor.

They were burying her in the village graveyard when the police arrived. Upon inquiry, those present failed to provide satisfactory details about her death. The body was examined by Constable Nazish Batool, who found signs of torture and burns on 10 parts of the body. The body was shifted to the Taranda Muhammad Pannah Rural Health Centre for postmortem.

The FIR states that based on further investigation, it was found that the deceased had eloped with Allah Dewaya Chandia, of Mauza Malikpur, and had returned after the intervention of local dignitaries. When her family attempted to arrange her marriage with Muhammad Asif Gopang of Miyani Acha on May 10, she refused.

This enraged her family and her father Atta Muhammad, along with Muhammad Asif, Arshad, Amjad, and others, killed her. The police said suspects would be arrested soon after the completion of the postmortem report.
