Ayesha Obaid, who was seriously wounded in firing in a Mirpurkhas village on Friday, succumbed to her injuries Sunday night at the JPMC. She was pregnant at the time of her murder.
Ayesha’s husband, Hassan Raza, told the media on Monday that he had sent her wife to live with a relative in Mirpurkhas after their house in Landhi was set on fire a few days ago, adding that he himself was hiding with his first wife, Zamurad, and their children. Hassan said that Ayesha was attacked at a market in Mirpurkhas.
Hassan also said that ever since Ayesha got married to him on June 25 in Lahore, they had been moving to different towns for protection because Ayesha had converted to Shia after marriage. Hassan appealed to the higher authorities to arrest Ayesha’s father, Qari Obaidullah, who had turned into an enemy after their marriage. staff report
