Naziah Masih

January, 2011

SARGODHA: A sister was slaughtered by two brothers because she refused to give up her job. In Chak No 88 NB, Sargodha, NaziaMasih, the daughter of Ashraf Masih, was a Lady Health Visitor (LHV) in the district hospital. Her two brothers had doubted her virtue. They believed that she had a physical relation with some unknown man and thought that due to her work she might become involved in prostitution. Due to this, her two brothers Munawar Masih and Nasir Masih first of all tried to stop her through coercion but when this failed they butchered her with knives.

The father of Nazia Masih filed a case against his sons and the investigation began. But the criminals are still wandering free. She had three brothers and one of them is ASI in police. ROD has learned it from the resources that there has been a settlement between the father and the sons. He will exonerate them after two or three months so that they'll be freed. The farce of lodging the case was played to deceive others because in the Constitution of Pakistan if the parents of the victim forgive themurderers they will be set free.
