FAISALABAD: A murder case has been registered against a man on charges of killing his minor daughter who was making a noise at home.

Submitting an application, Muhammad Sardar of Chak 476-GB, said his nephew Riaz Ahmed had allegedly clubbed his six-year-old daughter Noor Fatima to death on Wednesday.

We had tried to stop Ahmed from torturing Fatima but to no avail, he added.

He said Shagufta Bibi, mother of the deceased, was not living with them as she had left Ahmed.

He said Fatima breathed her last on the spot due to the torture and Ahmed managed his escape from the scene when the villagers gathered on the spot.

People said the girl was playing at her home and her father asked her to stop making a noise, however, Fatima didn’t keep quiet. They said Ahmed hit his daughter repeatedly with a wooden plank and escaped when she succumbed to her injuries.

Police have registered a case with no arrest.
