Killer of two Gujrat girls arrested

Police in Gujrat arrested the alleged killer of two girls after he threatened the parents that they would also be murdered if the case filed against him was not withdrawn, reported 24NewsHD TV channel on Wednesday. 

The case had emerged as a teenage girl was poisoned to death as the accused first raped and later claimed her life in Gujrat.

But she isn’t the lone victim as her elder sister too reportedly committed suicide some days back after consuming some poisonous material. It is now feared that the same person is involved in her death.

The incident was reported in Majra village where the 24-year-old neighbour, Hamza Munawar, sexually assaulted Ayesha Shabbir, 18, when she left her home for buying some groceries.

However, Munawar decided to kill her and administered poison to her, fearing that his action would soon become public.

The victim was later found from nearby fields in a serious condition where the accused had dumped her committing the crime. She was rushed to a hospital but could not survive.

A post-mortem conducted at the hospital confirmed that Ayesha had been raped and killed by using poison.

Meanwhile, Safia, her mother, got a case registered against the accused with the Daulat Nagar Police Station.  

According to the police, they are now also investigating the death of Ayesha’s elder sister, Rabiya, because of the suspicious manner in which she reportedly died.
