ISLAMABAD: Crime against women surged in the capital city in the last 20 days of April. During these 20 days, two women were murdered, two were kidnapped and one was killed after rape. The police have so far failed to track down the criminals.
On April 17, Ammara Asif, a resident of Sector F-71, was killed in her bedroom. The killer hit her on the head with a sharp-edged weapon and escaped. Her husband, Muhammad Asif, is in Kohsar police custody but no substantial progress has so far been made in the case.
Twenty-year-old Shazia Khushal, a resident of Faisalabad, was butchered in a house owned by a property dealer in F-111 on April 29. The killer had slit her throat. Shalimar police are still clueless about the killer. Police sources said she was raped before killing. However, hospital sources said that according to external post-mortem she was not raped before killing.
Eighteen-year-old housemaid, Tahira Bibi, a resident of Sargodha, was assaulted by the son of her employer. She became pregnant and lost her life during abortion at an Islamabad hospital on April 23. Mukhtar, the deceased’s father, also filed an application with Shalimar police but the rapist could not be arrested being son of an influential person.
Some unidentified persons kidnapped Umaira and Zahida from the limits of Shalimar and Shahzad Town police stations on April 26 and they’re yet to be recovered. Acting Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP) Dr Moeen Masood said that investigators were working on these cases and the criminals would be brought to justice.
