A 17-year-old girl was allegedly raped before being poisoned to death using insecticide pills in Rawalpindi’s Darkali Dhok Awan area on Monday.
Sajid Parveen, the victim’s mother, told authorities that around 5:30pm she had gone out to purchase groceries, when Muhammad Mubeen, the suspect entered the house and closed the doors after which he proceeded to sexually assault her daughter Yumna Batool.
When the mother returned home, she found all doors of the house locked.
Subsequently, with the help of the neighbours, she yelled out for Batool to open the door, but to no avail.
Later, Mubeen’s parents along with his brother came to their residence and helped him flee the scene.
