Fake 'Amil' makes brothers bury their sister alive

Ammar Ahmed Khan

TAXILA: On the instructions of a fake faith-healer two brothers killed their mentally sick sister in order to get the house rid of evil. 

Shabana, 38, and a resident of Banni Mohallah near Christian Hospital had not been seen since 4th of Dec. Her elder brother, Mohammad Imran, who lives separately, lodged a complaint with the police about his sister’s unexplained disappearance. On Friday, the victim’s mother called her brother, Abdul Lateef, saying she had been locked in a room by her two sons, Mohammad Farhan and Mohammad Kamran, and that she had managed to break out of the room.

Abdul Lateef came to his sister’s aid and also informed his nephew, Mohammad Imran. The victim’s mother told her brother and son that her daughter had been buried alive in the well in the house. Imran then informed the local police about the crime. Rescue 1122 was called to retrieve the body but the operation was abandoned when the oxygen supply was exhausted and it got dark.

Rescue 1122 officer Adeel Ahmed said the operation will resume on Saturday after more oxygen cylinders are brought in. Investigation Officer Assistant Sub-Inspector Mohammad Shahzad told media persons that both the suspects were taken into custody. He said the two brothers had confessed to killing their sister on the directives of the local spiritual healer, who had told them that evil forces have descended on her which also affected their family. The spiritual healer had advised they kill her in order to rid the family of evil forces.

A case will be registered against the suspects after the body is recovered. Another case in which a lack of knowledge destroys a life, even consultation with an amateur in the medical field could have prevented such a tragedy.

PESHAWAR: The nation will be observing 4th anniversary of the terrorist attack on the Army Public School Peshawar on Sunday.
Six terrorists stormed APS School on the same day four years ago and opened indiscriminate firing killing 147 students and teachers of the school.
Special functions have been arranged at APS schools and other educational institutions to pay homage to martyrs of APS school tragedy.
Similar, functions will be held in other parts of the country including candle vigil light in the memory of martyr students.

Candles were lit in the memory of martyrs of Army Public School (APS) Peshawar, outside DC Complex in Faisalabad today. Speaking on the occasion, the DC said the APS tragedy was the worst example of barbarism. He said sacrifices of the martyrs would be remembered for long. He said a site outside the DC Complex had been fixed where people could place flowers and lit candles for APS martyrs. Later, Fateha was also offered.

President of ANP Asfanyar Wali Khan Saturday emphasized on full implementation of the National Action Plan (NAP) drafted in the wake of APS carnage on December 16, 2014, that united the entire nation on the platform against terrorism. On the eve of the fifth anniversary of APC massacre, the ANP Chief argued that though some points of the NAP have been followed by the provinces and the federal government majority of the points yet to be implemented. To avoid APS like carnage, Asfandyar Wali said: “we have to bring the factors behind the national tragedy before of the nation”.  The notion of good and bad Taliban has to be abandoned and initiation of across the board action against the banned outfit was need of the hour to get rid of terrorism, he added. NAP is the best option available with us to overcome the problem of terrorism on sound footings, he added.  The atmosphere of trust and confidence is being built due to temporary peace in the region, therefore, we have to benefit from it an otherwise big danger in the shape of Daesh was looming large in the region which is being funded by forty countries. The philosophy of non-violence of Khudai Khidmatgar Khan Abdul Ghaffar Khan also known as Baacha Khan has to be followed in letter and spirit for achieving the desired goal of peace in the region.
