Rahim Yar Khan: Teen ‘kills couple over divorce’
RAHIM YAR KHAN: Madrasa police have arrested a girl after she admitted to having killed her father and his second wife for divorcing her mother and remarrying.
SHO Hameed Aslam said her brother, Naveed, 25, and two unidentified men who Noreen, 19, a resident of Haroonabad, said had aided her in the crime were yet to be arrested.
Talking to The Express Tribune at the police station, Noreen said she and her brother had strangled their father Yousaf and his second wife Shazia, residents of Adda Madrasa, after they fell asleep from the effect of soporific pills she had earlier mixed in their dinner on Sunday night.
“We planned to kill them to punish them for the pain my mother is going through,” she said. She said Yousaf had divorced her mother and married Shazia about seven months ago.
The suspect said she was dropped at Yousaf’s house in the evening by her brother. “I added the pills to the meal my step-mother was cooking when she left the kitchen for a while,” she said.
“I called my brother and his friends to the house when they fell asleep after eating that meal,” she said.
She said they killed the two and later dumped their bodies in a nearby canal with the help of his brother’s friends.
Madarsa police have recovered the bodies from the canal and sent them for post mortem examination.
An FIR has been registered against Noreen, Naveed and two unidentified men under Section 302 (murder) of the Pakistan Penal Code.
