Police sent Nighat’s body to the Rajana Rural Health Centre for autopsy and arrested Dilbar to probe into the matter.

The victim was identified as Allah Ditta Kodhan of Chak 160-JB, Jhang. Nawan Lahore police shifted the body to a rural health centre for autopsy.

BOOKED: An Ehsaas Kafalat Programme Gojra area agent was booked on Sunday for committing fraud with a woman beneficiary.
