A woman and her daughter were allegedly murdered in Khanewal district of Punjab, Express News reported on Tuesday.

The suspects, who are believed to be influential, abducted Saima, 18, and  sexually abused her for three days.

DPO Khanewal Rana Muhammad said that a case has been registered against the suspects. "They [the suspects] have pending cases against them already."

The police official added that the 'culprits' would soon be arrested with a medical report of the victims also awaited.

Authorities say Saima was kidnapped from her home in tehsil Kabeer wala’s suburb of Nandpur in Khanewal and then dropped off at her residence three days later.

The victim's family claim that once they approached the police, the suspects threatened them with dire consequences to pressure them.

When the victim’s brother and father left their home for work, the suspects entered Saima’s house and killed her and 45-year-old mother Nasreen by strangulation.

The suspects tried to make the incident seem like a suicide case with the victim's family claiming their neighbour Chaudhry Nazakhat has colluded with the suspects and he has gone underground along with his family.
