VANCOUVER DESI

In a chilling case similar to the attacks on two teenaged cousins in India, a 21-year-old Pakistani woman was raped and hanged from a tree in Layyah district (Punjab province in Pakistan), according to the AFP.

The police have taken the woman’s boyfriend Muhammad Saqib in custody, after he confessed to the rape and murder, the AFP reported.

The victim, daughter of blind parents, refused to have sex with Saqib’s two friends and had an argument, said the police.

She was found hanging from a tree the next morning, the AFP reported.

Police are still looking for the two alleged accomplices.

According to a post mortem report, the woman was raped before she was strangled and left for dead, the Express Tribune reported.

Saqib, who worked as an assistant at a vegetable wholesale shop, and the victim had allegedly had been in a relationship for about six months, the AFP report said.

Saqib brought the woman to the shop where he worked, a day before the murder, and took her to the roof where two of his friends were waiting.

When Saqib asked the woman to have sex with him and his friends, she resisted, the police said.

She was then allegedly raped and murdered. Police are still investigating if the victim was raped by Saqib’s friends as well.
