TOBA TEK SINGH: A missing woman and her minor daughter were found murdered on Saturday in their house in Chak 749-GB near Pirmahal.
A first information report (FIR) registered by the Arrouti police on the complaint of Zameer Abbas, of Chak 270-GB, Rajana, said his 25-year-old sister, Razia Bibi, (also with eight-month pregnancy) had come to his house along with her three-year-old daughter, Asma Parveen, three weeks ago and complained that her husband, Ramzan Sial, had thrown her out of home after she found him with a woman.
Some 10 days ago, Ramzan reconciled with his wife and took her back to home. The next day, when the complainant tried to contact Razia, her mobile phone was switched off. He went to their house and found it locked. When he contacted Ramzan, who is a Kamalia Sugar Mills employee, he told Zameer that she again had returned to the parents’ house. Even after 10 days, she could not be found.
He again went to the sugar mills where Ramzan confessed that he had strangled Razia and her daughter Asma. He told the complainant that he had buried them in the courtyard of the home. He went to their house with the complainant and other family members where bodies of both Razia and Asma were recovered and shifted for an autopsy to the Arrouti Rural Health Centre.
Ramzan managed to escape.
District Police Officer (DPO) Sadiq Ali Dogar said the accused was arrested in a nearby village.
During initial investigation, Ramzan confessed to strangling both Razia and Asma with the help of his sister-in-law, Kausar Bibi, and her husband Mazhar and another man Pannu.
The DPO said the police were also conducting raids to arrest his three accomplices.
Sources in the family said Ramzan had also electrocuted his first wife some seven years ago and he was also an addict.
BREAST CANCER: Illiteracy is the main reason behind the lack of awareness about breast cancer among women. All Women and Children Right Organisation general secretary Naseem Khan Seemi said this at a seminar in Gojra on Saturday. She said that a survey revealed that 40,000 women died every year in Pakistan from breast cancer while every ninth woman had danger of developing this disease only due to negligence in its timely detection.
DOG FIGHT: The Nawan Lahore police registered a case against 18 people on Saturday for holding a dog fight tournament in violation of ban imposed by the Punjab home department on it in Gojra Chak 344-JB on Saturday and arrested six of them.
