OKARA:  

A man was allegedly axed to death for abducting a girl in Okara on Monday.

An official of Okara Cantt police station told Express News that Muhammad Shareef, a resident of Chak No 4/7, and his brothers Muhammad Mushtaq and Muhammad Mansha, were passing through the area when accused Ashiq, Nadeem, Ramzan and others intercepted them.

He added the culprits caught Shareef and allegedly axed him to death. He said after committing the murder, the suspects fled the scene.

The police official revealed that a few days ago, Muhammad Shareef’s son had abducted a girl in the area. Later, the matter was resolved on the orders of a panchayat and the girl was returned, he maintained.

He transpired that the girl’s family members were enraged over the issue and decided to take revenge over the disgrace. In sheer frustration, they murdered Shareef.

The police have registered a case no 28/19 under sections 302 and 109 against the accused and started investigations.

Earlier in December 2018, a woman and her daughter were axed to death in Gujranwala’s Wazirabad City.

The police said unidentified criminals barged into a house in Kaka Kolu area and axed Ruqayya Bibi and her daughter Maryam Shehzadi to death. After carrying out the murder, the culprits dumped the bodies of the victims in a room and fled the scene.

After two days, the stench emanating from the house led to the discovery of the bodies.

Investigations revealed that Ruqayya’s husband had passed away a few years ago. Both the victims were living alone in the house, while the woman’s son worked in Qila Didar Singh Town.
