Chakwal: Jobless suitor shoots love
CHAKWAL: A suitor shot dead the girl he wanted to marry after her parents rejected his hand because he was jobless, relatives and police said. “Who would give the hand of his daughter to someone sitting idle at home,” a grieving uncle of Nazima Iram told Dawn.
“Ghulam Shabbir (the suitor) was told to mend his ways and find a job,” said uncle Fazlur Rehman. Shabbir, a resident of Phupeel village in Sohawa tehsil of district Jhelum, went into hiding after killing his love in Rata Mohra area on Monday.
Fazlur Rehman said Shabbir killed Nazima, 28, after learning that the family had decided to marry her to another man. “We have been shattered by this tragic and unexpected incident,” he said.
