Monitoring report

GUJRAT: The body of an Italian-Pakistani woman, Sana Cheema, who was killed in an alleged case of ‘honour killing’ has been exhumed and the samples have been sent for post-mortem, the Geo News reported on Wednesday.

On Tuesday, it was reported that the girl was allegedly killed by her father, brother, and uncle over ‘honour’. Police said the 26-year-old woman’s family had termed her death an ‘accident’ and buried her in West Mangowal, Gujrat district, on April 18. However, documents appearing on Wednesday proved that Sana was taken to hospital on April 11 seeking treatment for blood pressure and stomach ache.

The police have received the doctor’s prescription, along with hospital and medical stor bills. The police said they have to investigate whether the prescription and bills are real or not.

The grave-digger who buried Sana’s body has reportedly said the relatives of the deceased were in a hurry to bury her as they had brought two labourers with them to expedite the burial. The case has garnered attention on social media, and the Women’s March - Milan is calling for people to post pictures demanding #JusticeforSana and #TruthforSana.
