Lahore: Maid found hanged
LAHORE: A 17-year-old girl was found hanged under mysterious circumstances at her master`s house in N-Block, Defense Housing Authority, on Tuesday.
Defense B police took into custody two youngsters who reportedly got acquaintance with Humaira Jabeen of Nishat Colony, South Cantonment.
Police investigation showed that Humaira, daughter of Nazir Ahmad, was maid at the residence of Dr Basharat. She got acquaintance with Faisal and Shahzad, both residents of Nishat Colony, some time ago.
On the day of the incident, Humaira was present at her master`s home when the youngsters reached there and met her. As they were sitting in the television lounge, a male servant of Dr Basharat caught them `red-handed` and locked the strangers in a room. He then alerted the DHA security. The girl who knew the sensitivity of the matter hanged herself with the ceiling fan of the lounge apparently to avoid insult.
Quoting the family, Cantonment SP Investigation Amin Bokhari said the youngsters, who had been teasing Humaira for the last few months, did not stop visiting her despite warnings.
