According to the city police, the suspect Muneed Ahmed, who is believed to be a relative of Shamim, wished to marry her, but upon her refusal, he decided to end her life.
The closed-circuit television footage of the incident, which occurred Monday night, shows Ahmed chasing Shamim and trying to stop her forcefully on a road in Rahim Yar Khan’s Scheme 3 area.
