A young woman in the Mehrabadi area of Sector G-12, recently brought under the jurisdiction of Golra Police Station, was set on fire following a minor dispute in a horrific incident. The victim suffered serious burn injuries and was taken to Pakistan Institute of Medical Sciences (PIMS) for treatment, but has since been declared out of danger.

In response to the victim’s complaint, Islamabad Police acted quickly and registered an FIR, with charges including sections 336-B/324/34 PPC. The police have apprehended three individuals, including a woman who reportedly played a role in the crime, while two others are still being sought.

According to the details of the case, the assailant’s family lived in the victim’s home as tenants but had not paid rent. When the victim attempted to collect the rent, one of the tenants used abusive language and refused to pay. During the victim’s second visit to demand payment, the tenant’s family sprinkled petrol on her and set her on fire. The attackers fled the scene after witnessing the victim engulfed in flames.

The incident shocked the surrounding community, with volunteers and onlookers rushing to aid the victim and extinguish the flames. This gruesome attack underscores the importance of resolving disputes through peaceful means and refraining from violence. Law enforcement must ensure that the perpetrators of this heinous act are held accountable and punished severely.
