Former member of Punjab Assembly Parveen Sikandar Gill was found dead in her house in Lahore's Naseerabad area, police said on Thursday.

Officials said that the former MPA — who lived alone in her house — had rope marks around her neck and expressed suspicion that she had been murdered.

A first information report of the incident is yet to be registered.

The 64-year-old started her political career in late 1970s and was a member of the local government in Lahore. Gill was elected to the Punjab Assembly on the ticket of Pakistan Muslim League-Quaid in 2002. She was also the secretary of the Pakistan Hockey Federation's Women Wing and had also served as vice president of the Punjab Olympic Association.
