Karachi: A woman committed suicide over a marriage proposal in her residence in the Pakistan Bazaar police limits on Thursday. Rahat, 24, daughter of Abdul Basheer, after an altercation with her parents, locked herself in a room of their residence in Sector 14/K in Orangi Town and hanged herself from a ceiling fan.
A few hours later, her mother called her for some work but there was no response. She called her husband, who broke open the door and saw her body. They took her body to the Abbasi Shaheed Hospital, but brought it back without completing the legal formalities. The family members wanted her to marry their nephew but she refused and ended her life.
