- A 24-year-old Christian woman has reportedly been murdered after refusing to convert and marry a Muslim man.
A Muslim man named Shahzad has been accused of murdering a Christian woman after she refused to convert and marry him.
However, the police claimed that no evidence of forced conversion has been found during the investigation so far.
According to details, the 24-year-old Christian housemaid, Sonia Bibi, was shot dead in Islamabad on the 30th of November allegedly by Shahzad for refusing to renounce her faith and marry him.
The victim’s father, Allah Rakha Masih, who is a sanitary worker, said Shahzad had been following her daughter for the past six months. The accused had also sent his mother to their house with a marriage proposal, but they had refused because of their different religions. Masih said Shahzad had threatened to kill her daughter.
Sonia Bibi was shot in the head at the Fazaia Colony bus stop in Rawalpindi. She died on the way to a hospital in Islamabad.
The police said that an FIR was immediately registered, adding that Faizan, one of the two suspects nominated in the case, had been detained. The main suspect Shahzad is still at large, and raids are being carried out to arrest him.
