Chinese strangulated to death in Islamabad
ISLAMABAD, Feb 11: A Chinese acupuncturist was strangled on Friday, police said. The body of Jia Yu Lail, 45, was recovered from her flat, which she was also using as her clinic since 2006, in I-8 Markaz’s Rose Plaza. The Chinese embassy was informed about the murder.
According to autopsy report, the acupuncturist had injuries on the head and neck. It suggested that she was killed somewhere between 10am to 1pm.
The incident came to light when two women looking for a job came to the clinic.
Despite several knocks they did not get any response from inside. They along with a neighbour, Dr Adeeb, entered the flat and found her dead.
Police said the acupuncturist had her coat on, suggesting that at the time of incident she was probably treating the killer as patient.
Police said her hands and legs were tied and a cloth was found in her mouth with strangulation marks on the neck. Nothing was missing from the house-cum-clinic.
Police said no effort was made to break the door or the locks, adding that a man visited the acupuncturist on Thursday evening, and no one saw him
going back. The victim’s neighbours told police that they heard yelling and noises of scuffle from the flat at around 4am on Friday.
Police said the acupuncturist married a man – MD – from Rawat some three years ago. This was the second marriage of MD who stayed with her in the flat for a year.
Police said two years back, the husband left the flat, adding that it was yet to be established if they had separated.
However, according to neighbours, they never saw the husband again after he left the flat.
