Missing girl found dead
LAHORE: A girl, who was found lying unconscious at the doorstep of her Shadhra residence, died at Mian Munshi Hospital on Monday.
Isma (11) disappeared at around 6.00pm on Sunday evening when her mother and sister went to get some medicine after leaving her alone at her Kamran Park, Gulshan-e-Hayat residence. Isma’s father, Muhammad Ashraf told Daily Times that when his wife returned, she did not find Isma in the house. He said she informed him and they started looking for her. After searching in vain, he informed Shadhra Police of her disappearance.
He said at around 8.30am on Monday morning, they heard a knock at the door and when they opened it, they found Isma’s unconscious body lying at the doorstep with foam coming out of her mouth. Mr Ashraf took her to an area doctor who advised him to take her to Mian Munshi Hospital as early as possible. Isma was admitted the hospital where she expired 20 minutes after her admission, he said. Ashraf alleged that his daughter died due to the negligence of the hospital staff.
Mr Ashraf said one of his neighbours, Imran, was interested in Isma and his younger sister, Nabila, was her friend. The people of the area said when his wife and other daughter went to the doctor, Imran and Nabila came to the house and took Isma with them, he added. Mr Ashraf said Imran and Nabila killed his daughter as he had refused to marry Isma with Imran. Shadhra Police arrested Imran on the complaint of Ashraf. Isma’s body has been sent for autopsy.
