Missing girl’s body recovered in Islamabad
ISLAMABAD: The body of a girl missing since November last year was found from Soan Nullah on Thursday, as an affair and a false promise of marriage led to her death, police said.
In-charge Crime Investigation Agency (CIA) Deputy Superintendent of Police Bashir Noon told Dawn that Samina Kausar, 26, was murdered by a man who after taking money and gold ornaments from her promised to marry her. The agency has arrested FN and GK, saying they have confessed the murder and on their information Kausar’s body was recovered.
Kausar disappeared on the night of November 23 last year from her house in village Gora Must in the limits of Koral police station. Her father Hamid Naveed, an army hawaldar, told police that FN, a shopkeeper, and UH, members of his extended family, have kidnapped Kausar.
Koral police arrested the accused, but they did not confess. As FN and UH were released, the probe was handed over to CIA. As some villagers told CIA investigators that they saw Kausar with FN on the night of disappearance, he was arrested again.
FN told investigators that Kausar asked him to marry her after they developed friendship in July last year. Though he wanted to marry daughter of GK, he continued to take money and gold ornaments from Kausar on the pretext of preparing for marriage. As member of the extended family, he would frequently visit Kausar’s home. Police said as the days passed and FN not heeding Kausar’s insistence on getting married, she demanded for her money and jewellery back. FN who had spent the money and sold the gold ornaments planned to kill Kausar with the help of GK, his future father-in-law, according to the police.
On November 23 last year, he asked Kausar to elope and tie the knot. But FN and GK took her to Soan Nullah where they gunned her down. They tied the body with a heavy stone and threw it in the nullah.
