Lahore woman dies by suicide

A woman died by suicide in Lahore’s Kot Lakhpat, the police said on Sunday.

According to the police, the woman was being harassed and blackmailed by a man, identified as Ali Niazi, online. On July 10, she had filed a complaint against the man with the Federal Investigation Agency’s Cyber Crime Cell.

The man was arrested on July 30 and has been in police custody ever since, a police officer said.

“The woman died by tying a dupatta around her neck,” he revealed, adding that her body was found hanging from a fan in her room.

Her family buried her in Sargodha without informing the police. “Her counselor told us that her family had been informed about the woman’s anxiety and depression beforehand.”
