DBA president wants police charged with negligence.

BAHAWALPUR: A man allegedly killed his married sister in the court of a magistrate, on Wednesday, for eloping with her paramour. He was arrested by the Cantt police and a case was registered against him.

According to details, Parveen, a resident of Dera Nawab area, was brought to court by the police to record her statements. She had earlier run away with Hashim, her paramour, but was recovered by the police and sent to a Darul Amaan on the directives of a magistrate, after her husband, Niaz, and brother, Yousaf, registered a kidnapping case against Hashim.

Yousaf opened fire at Parveen as she entered the court premises. He was arrested by the police and Parveen was taken to a hospital but died on the way.

Bahawalpur district bar association (DBA) president, Munir Pirzada, called an emergency meeting after the incident. Addressing the meeting Pirzada held the police responsible for the murder.

He said that had the police been more vigilant the tragic incident could have been avoided.

He said that the police officials bringing Parveen to the court should be charged for negligence in performing their duties.

    I think when the time comes for war, we Pakistani’s will be the most brutal in being able to save ourselves without regard for others. Having mentioned that, the above blurb did not shock me in the slightest. The day our police forces start doing the job that our working class taxes expect them to, that will be the day Mission Centenarian crumblesRecommend

    i can just hear the highfiving & nods of approval from the ultramacho,ghairat mand male segment of ours(which is over 90% of our males).This sick freak has restored his family’s honour,put an unislamic female in her placeJust think about it:allowing a woman to think for herself,to make decisions for herself,that just can’t be allowed to happen in our land of the pure.

    When a boy is told from birth that he’s a superior being,that he can marry & keep as his personal property 4 girls,but the girls cannot have 4 husbands at a time,that what his eyes see are double worth than what a female’s who has just witnessed the same thing,that a “good” wife is submissive,servile with a healthy dose of low self esteem,who must “compromise” whenever her majazi khuda beats her black & blue,then such barbaric events will continue to take place.

    As long as women are happy to play the role of the dependent,servile,self-effacing daughters,sisters,wives & mothers then such barbarity will continue.Recommend

    i dont understand how do married women fall for other men? i get that they mightve been forced to marry in the first place, but this running away thing seems too unreal.Recommend

    Amina Ansari: This blogger completely agrees with you. Even after another six decades the situation will be the same.

    Tribal and caste loyalties supercede and impose their demoniac traditions on the majority of the populace without even the blink of an eye.

    My profound sympathies to the husband and all unfortunate victims.Recommend
