Suspects in the Abeera murder case took a polygraph test on Thursday to facilitate further investigation into the murder of the 20-year-old.
The suspects, Tooba and Farooq, took the lie detector test for allegedly killing the aspiring model, who was found dead in a suitcase at the Sherakot bus stand.
On Tuesday, the post-mortem report showed that she was likely suffocated to death. The report came just a day after a third suspect was detained for involvement in the murder of Abeera.
Abeera, 20, had shifted to Lahore from Sialkot to study at a private university. Initially, she lived with her maternal uncle but later she moved to a girl’s hostel on Wahdat Road.
As per the post-mortem report, no torture marks were found on the 20-year-old’s body and that she apparently died due to suffocation.
The autopsy report also ascertained that the victim’s body was kept in a freezer before it was stuffed in a bag due to which it became stiff.
“No fingerprints were found on her hands, arms,” the report added. However, medics stated in the autopsy report that the exact cause of death or possibility of sexual assault cannot be conclusively determined until the results of her swabs, different body organs, hair and nails arrive from the Punjab Forensic Science Agency (PFSA).
