A cold-hearted man named Shahzaib, who wanted to have a son, brutally killed his seven-day-old daughter by shooting her multiple times.
Per the report, the tragic incident happened in the Noor Pura neighborhood of Mianwali, where the father killed the infant by opening fire on her just because she was a girl. The police said that the man, who wanted a son, fled after committing the crime. A first information report (FIR) of the incident was filed by the deceased child’s maternal grandfather.
Commenting on the incident, the National Commission on Status of Women’s (NCSW) Chairperson Nilofar Bakhtiar said that the sole purpose of killing the child was because of her gender, adding that the law enforcement authorities will leave no stone unturned to catch the culprit.
“The protection of human rights, especially women’s rights, is very important in our country,” Bakhtiar said.
Inspector General (IG) Punjab has taken notice of the killing and has summoned a report from RPO Sargodha. He ordered to arrest the accused immediately and take strict legal action against him. He also instructed to keep close contact with the victim’s family.
The cruel incident has left Pakistan in anger. Netizens have flocked to twitter to condemn the brutal murder. The incident was widely condemned after reports and pictures of the innocent victim went viral. Ever since the incident occurred, netizens have been sharing images of the infant while calling for strict action against the culprit.
