Another Hindu girl was shot dead in Rohri town Monday when she reportedly offered resistance to foil the bid to abduct her.
Sukkur police arrested an accused killer of the Hindu girl and registered an FIR against him under the relevant sections of the Pakistan Penal Code.
Reports said that on Monday, one Wahid Lashari with a pistol entered the house of Sahib Oad in the area of Rohri town of Sukkur district. He fired at 18-year-old Pooja Kumari when the girl and other family members resisted the attempt to kidnap her. The victim died on the spot.
The accused, after killing the girl, tried to escape from the scene. Sukkur SSP Sanghaar Malik, taking notice of the incident, ordered the arrest of the accused killer.
The police teams arrested the alleged killer from the limits of Rohri and recovered a pistol from his possession. The incident created a widespread uproar on social media, and rights activists strongly condemned the killing of yet another Hindu girl in such a brutal manner.
They demanded the protection of the daughters of the people of religious minorities, especially Hindus and Christians.
