A 14-year-old girl in Lahore takes matters into her own hands to end the nightmare.
Lahore, September 24, 2023 – In a shocking incident in Lahore, a 14-year-old Pakistani girl courageously shot and killed her father, whom she accused of raping her repeatedly over the past three months.
According to local authorities, the harrowing incident unfolded in the Gujjarpura area of Lahore city. The brave young girl, in her statement to the police, detailed the ongoing sexual abuse she had endured at the hands of her father.
Investigating officer Sohail Kazmi stated, “She said she was going through hell and decided to take matters into her own hands, ultimately using her father’s own firearm to shoot him dead.”
