SHEIKHUPURA: A man killed his 15-year old daughter in the name of honour with assistance from his domestic staff in Sheikhupura, police told Friday.
The two men then dumped the young woman’s body in a river. Her father has registered a fake case, the law enforcers claimed.
An unidentified woman’s body was discovered in the Khanpur River on January 3. She was later identified with the help of bio metrics.
Her father, Akhtar, confessed to the killing, said the police. “I was suspecting my daughter so I killed her, dumped the body in a river and then told my younger brother to file a missing persons report,” he was quoted by police as saying.
Police said the missing persons report had been filed at the Shahdara police station where the age of the young woman was listed as being eight to nine years old and her mental state as ‘unstable.’
When the police demanded a B-form, it said that she was 15 years old.
Akhtar is to be presented in court today (Friday).
