Two Spanish national sisters of Pakistani origin were killed by their paternal uncle in the village of Nathia, Gujrat district because they did not take their husbands to Spain.
Arooj Abbas and Aneesa Abbas, aged between 21 and 23, were married to their cousins in Pakistan more than a year ago but they were unable to get their respective husbands visas to settle with them in Spain.
Their in-laws suspected they had deliberately delayed the procedure for their spouses’ visas.
The initial investigation, shared by police sources, implied that the two sisters were unhappy with their marriage. Their family succeeded in bringing them back to Pakistan a few days ago.
On Friday, they were found dead in their house. They were badly tortured before being gunned down.
Gujrat District Police Officer Ataur Rehman, the Kharian DSP, and others reached the site while a team of forensic experts gathered forensic evidence from the crime scene. The corpses were transferred to the hospital for autopsy.
The police reported that the women were killed by their paternal uncle who was also the father-in-law of one of them. However, nobody registered a case yet. The DPO stated that the police had begun raids to apprehend suspects involved in the case.
