District: (Youth kills real sister few hours before her marriage)

SIALKOT: An infuriated youth shot dead his real sister a few hours before her marriage over a dispute of doing her marriage first before his (accused) marriage in village Veerwala-Satrah, Daska tehsil here on Sunday.

Reportedly, Sunday was the day of wedding of “ill-fated” Saadia (25 years old). She was sitting in her house in bridal dress just a few hours before the arrival of her Baraat, when her accused brother Rab Nawaz quarrelled with her over a dispute of being wed first before his marriage.

After this, he became infuriated and opened fire on her killing her on the spot, a few hours before her wedding. Her hands decorated with Henna (Mehndi) were filled with her own blood.

All the arrangements were made and the wedding guests were present there to accord a warm welcome to her Baraat which was to be reached there from Daska city. A wedding guest Bushra Bibi (26) was also injured in this firing incident and was admitted at Daska Civil Hospital in critical condition. Accused fled away from the scene.

Victim Saadia’s father Murad Ali told the police that the accused was infuriated because of delay in his own marriage, saying that accused actually wanted to be married before the marriage of her sister thus he shot her dead. Satrah police have registered a case and shifted the dead body to Daska Civil Hospital for autopsy.
