British-Pakistani Woman Found Murdered: Allegedly By Friends Who Wanted To Marry Her
Police confirmed on Tuesday that a 25-year-old British-Pakistani woman was found dead in a house in DHA Phase 5, Lahore. Reports indicate that Mahira Zulfiqar was staying in the upper portion of the house with her friend, after having arrived in Pakistan from the UK some two months ago.
Her uncle filed the FIR, stating that she had visited him a few days before this and had told him that two of her friends were threatening and harassing her. The police have registered a case against four individuals, who include two of her friends Zahir Jadoon and Saad Amir Butt. The two friends allegedly wished to marry Zulfiqar.
Mahira Zulfiqar had moved to Pakistan a year ago after attending a friend’s wedding.
Authorities have stated that Mahira Zulfiqar was strangled and shot – her body having been found around midday by a domestic worker employed to clean the house.
