Police have arrested the girl’s brother, Waqas, and her uncle, Mulazim Hussain, on a complaint by the boy’s brother, Khalid. Some other members of the girl’s family, including her father, have also been named in the case,.
Police said 10th class student, Nosheen, and first year student, Muhammad Ajmal, had been shot. The bodies also bore sharp weapon wounds.
Police claimed to have recovered an axe from the house of one of the girl’s relatives. They speculated that the axe was used in the crime.
The girl’ father, Allah Ditta, told police that Ajmal had sent his parents to their house with the proposal a few months ago, but he had turned it down because they were a different caste. He said on Tuesday night, his daughter went missing. He said he and some of his relatives looked for her but could not find her.
He said he had learnt that Ajmal, who lived in the neighbourhood, was also missing. He said both the families believed that the two had eloped.
However, on Wednesday morning, he said, their bodies were found lying in a nearby field. He said he did not know who had killed the two.
