JHANG: A brilliant student is fighting for life at the Allied Hospital of Faisalabad after her brother shot at and injured her for refusing to marry before completion of her education.
Warda, who topped the BISE examination 2017 by scoring 1001 (out of 1,100 marks) in FSc and aspires a career in medicine, suffered three bullets on her arm, face and abdomen and is being treated in the emergency ward of the hospital.
Police registered a case against the absconder 12 days after the incident. According to the FIR 1173/17 lodged under section 324 of PPC with the Kotwali police station, Shadab Colony’s Muhammad Aslam informed the Jhang Kotwali police that his son Sabir Hussain opened fire on his (applicant’s) daughter Warda because of her “marriage dispute” on Oct 24. Sabir fled the house, he said.
He said Warda suffered injuries on her arm, face and abdomen and she was shifted to the Jhang District Headquarters Hospital from where she was referred to the Allied Hospital.
She appeals to Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif to allow her to get admission to any medical college once she recovers.
