Girl arrested for burning her father to death
A girl in Pakistan has been arrested on suspicion of burning her father to death – after he allegedly tried to rape her and her sisters.
The girl made plans to kill her father after he allegedly tried to rape her, having already molested her sisters.
The girl’s brother told police that his sister had used sleeping pills to drug their father before setting him on fire – with police revealing that the man died from his injuries.
She has since been taken into custody on charges of premeditated murder and punishment for intention to cause hurt, and is being held at a police station in the capital of Karachi.
In 2013, 2,576 cases of rape of women were reported and these statistics illustrate the oppression that women suffer from in Pakistan.
