Pregnant woman was killed by her father
Karachi: Twenty-five-year-old Fahima, who was nine months pregnant with her second child, was stabbed to death in the Docks police limits, allegedly by her father and brother. Docks SHO Akhtar said that the incident was reported in Machher Colony. The police have found the murder weapons — a dagger and an axe.
According to The News during investigation, it was found that Fahima married Zameem Khan of her own free will about seven years ago in Swabi, Balochistan. Fahima’s father, Zahir Khan, and her brother, Fida Hussain, were against the marriage, and had been threatening the couple with death.
After the wedding, the couple escaped to Karachi and settled in Orangi Town, where Fahima’s father and brother traced them after three years, after which the couple shifted to Machher Colony.
On Wednesday morning, Zameem had left for work and the couple’s daughter was playing outside the house, when Fida Hussain and Zahir Khan allegedly broke into the house and attacked Fahima. They stabbed her with a dagger, hit her repeatedly with an axe, and fled after she died.
SHO Akhtar said that the men had killed Fahima very brutally and at time of murder she was nine months pregnant. She was supposed to be admitted to a hospital two days later for delivery. Meanwhile, a case has been registered.[google-map]
