A woman in Sialkot district was severely tortured and set ablaze by her in-laws.

The victim’s brother, Shehzad, told the police:

My sister Shazia married Rana Faros, son of Bashir Ahmad, some 15 years ago. Her in-laws used to torture her, and a case was also registered against the accused persons, including Bashir Ahmad and Rasheeda Bibi.

Despite the repetitive occurrences, Shazia’s family kept forcing her to live with her in-laws.

On the 27th of September, locals called Shehzad and informed him that his sister was set ablaze. Shehzad rushed to her only to discover that 95% of her body had been burned.

Immediately, he took Shazia Bibi to a hospital in Sialkot. However, as that was no help to Shazia, he brought her to the Jinnah Hospital in Lahore, where she fought for her life.

After undergoing treatment, Shazia found enough strength to record her statement. Shazia alleged:

I was cooking on the porch when my in-laws set me ablaze. I ran outside in pain and torment when my younger brother-in-law saw me and helped put out the fire.

A case has been registered against the accused persons. Further investigation into the matter is underway.
