LAHORE: Several arrests have been made after a man, identified as Usama left the dead body of a pregnant 23-year-old girl, Marium, at Jinnah Hospital in Lahore on Monday.
According to the details, the body of the young girl was recovered outside the emergency ward of Jinnah Hospital in Lahore and sent for medico-legal formalities by the police.
Marium, the deceased student, was a resident of Gujrat and was getting her education from Government College University. The initial post-mortem report revealed that the 23-year-old was pregnant and allegedly died due to excessive bleeding during an unsafe abortion.
Marium’s body was handed over to her family after conducting the post-mortem. According to the police, the autopsy report will reveal more facts regarding the young girl’s death.
CCTV footage of the incident went viral on social media and showed the suspect, identified as Usama, dropping off the dead body of the pregnant girl at the emergency ward of Jinnah Hospital in Lahore.
In the video, we can see Usama getting out of a white Suzuki Swift and dropping off the dead body at the hospital while another person remains in the driver’s seat of the vehicle.
The police initially arrested Usama with the help of the CCTV footage but after getting more information into the case from the accused, they were able to track down his accomplice, Owais, and take him into custody as well.
Moreover, the police claimed to have arrested the woman involved in the unsafe abortion of the 23-year-old girl.
However, in an interview with a local media outlet, the 23-year-old girl’s father said that his daughter was in Lahore to submit her university fee and get her degree but he lost contact with her after the collection of money.
“Her course was completed and the university said she will be given the degree after the fee is submitted,” her father told SAMAA TV.
