Woman winning divorce suit killed by ex-husband

GUJRAT: A woman who had contracted love marriage, was shot dead by her ex-husband on Friday after the divorce suit was decided in her favour by a court at Phalia town of Mandi Bahauddin.

According to police, Nimra (25), a resident of Azizabad Colony, Gujrat, had contracted love marriage with one Awais Qamar a few years ago. The couple had a daughter.

However, the couple developed differences and Nimra filed a civil suit seeking divorce from her husband in a civil court at Phalia.

The court decided the case in favour of Nimra on Friday.

After hearing the verdict, Nimra left the court premises with her brother.

On their way back, the brother and sister stopped at a stall to buy snacks, when Nimra’s husband, who had been chasing them, allegedly shot her dead on the spot and fled the scene.

On being informed of the incident, the police reached the spot and shifted the body to the Phalia Tehsil Headquarters Hospital for an autopsy. A team of forensic experts later collected the evidence from the crime scene.

Police have registered a case under sections 302, 148, 149 of the Pakistan Penal Code (PPC) against the suspect Awais Qamar, his brother Nadeem and their mother Anwar Bibi and started investigation into the case.
