Woman shot dead in Nowshera
NOWSHERA: A woman was shot dead in Sohbat Koroona village on Tuesday, police said. Father of the deceased, Maulvi Abdul Hameed, reported to the police that his daughter, Sofia, who used to teach Islamic education to children in a local seminary, had gone missing six months ago and returned home last month.
He said that he along with his family members was at home when his nephew Muhammad Ayaz arrived and opened fire on his daughter, killing her on the spot. “I did not say anything to my daughter as I knew she was innocent and had not run away with someone, but was taken away by ‘jinaat’ (evil spirits). I can prove it to the police,” he said.
