A British woman of Pakistani origin has been found dead after being shot at a home in the eastern city of Lahore, police said. Police detained two Pakistani men for questioning to determine whether they had any involvement in the killing of Mahira Zulfiquar, who is about 25.
According to local media reports, police suspect the woman was killed after she refused to marry a man.
Mahira Zulfiquar arrived in Pakistan two months ago to attend a wedding and was staying at a rented home with her friend. Pakistan's English-language newspaper Dawn reported that Zulifquar had bullet wounds and signs of torture on her body.
Police registered a case on a complaint from Zulifquar's friend Mohammad Nazeer, who alleged a man wanted to marry her and threatened her with "dire consequences.”
Authorities say Pakistan's foreign ministry was also in touch with the police over the matter.
The businessman, who was also arrested, was meant to "give the foot to a healer so that he would make a product which would make him (the father) prosperous," said the statement.
The police produced the accused in the court to seek extension in his physical remand. Magistrate Suhaib Bilal Ranjha extended the remand for two days. Jaffer is accused of killing the daughter of former ambassador Shaukat Ali Mukadam.
