A man was arrested in Muzaffargarh on Monday for raping a woman whose throat he had slit on resistance.

He was spotted by some residents of the area, beaten up and handed over to the police. Police said he had confessed.

They said the 30-year-old peasant, a resident of Rohinlawali, had been dragged into a field on her way for work. When she resisted the suspect, he injured her by slitting her throat. He then raped her.

Some passers-by saw him and beat him up. They took her to district headquarters hospital, where she was pronounced dead. Doctors who carried out the post-mortem said she had passed away before she was raped.

The deceased was a mother of three.

Some residents of the area later protested against the police alleging that they were planning a settlement with the suspect, Shahid, who they said, had the support of a landlord.

Station House Officer Muhammad Husnain told The Express Tribune that the suspect would be treated in accordance with law after. He said a detailed report from the chemical examiner was awaited.

He said an FIR had been registered under Sections 302 and 334 (murder and intentional hurt).

Immensely sad. I hope meaningful action is taken immediately.

Also, they should have probably used a wide angle shot of an anti-rape protest, instead of up-close image of a protester. I am sure the woman above doesn't want to be the face of this story on ET.

It is only a rape no insulting cartoons so no reason to take to the streets and protest.
