DERA ISMAIL KHAN:

In an unprecedented incident, three women madrassa teachers in Dera Ismail Khan, Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa allegedly murdered their colleague on the pretext that she committed blasphemy.

The teachers who are currently in police custody, according to District Police Officer Najam Hasnain Liaquat, confessed to the crime, disclosing: “One of their relatives, about a 13-year-old girl [who is also in police custody], had seen a dream last night that Prophet (PBUH) had directed them that the victim had committed blasphemy against the Prophet and that the Prophet had ordered them to slaughter the victim.”

The incident took place on Dera-Multan Road in the Anjumabad area, and the police have initiated a probe to ascertain the cause of the murder.

The women, identified as Razia Hanfi, 21, and Ayesha Nomani, 17, both daughters of Allah Noor, and Umra Aman, 24, daughter of Din Badshah arrived at the Jamia Islamia Falahul Binaat, Multan Road within the limits of Cantt Police Station at around 7am. All the three suspects belong to the Mehsud tribe and are residents of Anjumabad.

The three girls killed the teacher identified as Safoora Bibi aged 21 years, resident of Tiarza in the South Waziristan area when she arrived there in a rickshaw from home.

As soon as the incident was reported, a heavy contingent of police led by City Circle Deputy Superintendent of Police Saghir Gilani rushed to the scene and shifted the body to Civil Hospital for a postmortem.

Confirming the arrests, DPO Liaquat said a knife and a stick had been recovered from their possession.

He added that the police are also trying to gain access to the mobile phones and other evidence related to the murder. Liaquat stated that a controversy had been ongoing between two seminaries for women situated in the area.

According to the uncle of the victim, he was present at his home when the administration of the seminary informed him that his niece had been attacked. "When we arrived there, we saw her body in the street with her throat cut," he added.
