Rawalpindi: Youth, newly-wed bride commit suicide
RAWALPINDI: Two persons including a newly–married woman committed suicide over petty domestic issues in different areas here on Wednesday, police said. Amir Shahzad 21, whose mother had got divorce through court of law from her husband and married again leaving her two sons alone, killed himself by taking poisonous pills in his rented house in Race Course police area on Wednesday.
Amir’s mother who had been living with her second husband in a separate house did not believe her younger son Mohammad Rafiq when he informed her that his elder brother Amir had committed suicide as she took it as a joke. She believed it only after a police officer confirmed to her that her son’s body was lying in the mortuary of District Headquarters (DHQ) hospital Rawalpindi.
Mohammad Rafiq said in his statement that his brother had been in distress since his parents got separated and later both of them got married leaving them alone. “On early Wednesday morning, my brother took leave from the owner of his shop where he worked, took bath and offered his prayers. Later, he telephoned his mother and told her of his intentions requesting her not to attend his funeral prayers,” he said.
In the second incident, Aroosa Farhan who recently got married with Farhan Shafeeq was found hanging with a rope tied to the ceiling fan in her house in Dhoke Lulial (Airport police area) on Wednesday afternoon. Police said Aroosa had been asking her father-in-law to allow her to go to her parents’ house, but she was denied the same that drove her into distress.
Later she went into her bedroom where she hanged herself. She was continuing education even after her marriage and the in-laws wanted her to visit parents’ house after taking graduation exam.
