Police have registered an FIR against Shaman and others for preparing fake Nikah-nama and blackmailing Asmat which forced her to commit suicide

DADU: Asmat Khalid, a final year student of MBBS in Peoples University of Medical and Health Sciences for Women, Nawabshah, has committed suicide due to blackmailing by a local man Shaman and his family who claimed Asmat was married to Shaman.

Asma Khalid Rajput, a final year MBBS student, was found dead at her residence at the Sita Town road in Dadu on January 8. According to police, she shot herself dead from point blank and she was mentally pressurised into doing so.

Asma’s death has sparked an outrage on social media and people have demanded arrest of the perpetrators.

On Jan 14, 2022, parents of the deceased, close relatives and locals of the area took to streets of Dadu and protested with placards and chanted slogans against the police. “It has been nine days. The prime suspect is still on the run,” Asma’s brother told media.

“My sister became a victim of blackmailing and severe injustice.”

Suicide and fake nikkah

Asma Khalid was a student at the Peoples University of Medical and Health Sciences for Women, Nawabshah. She was found dead at her residence on Saturday, January 8, 2022.

When the police reached her residence to collect the body for a post-mortem examination, they found a suicide note there.

The suicide note was addressed to her father.

“Ammi Papa I am very sorry,” it read. “You will be very upset. But I got weak. Forgive me. You both worked very hard for me in old age. Thank you,” the note added.

Dadu SSP Aijaz Ahmed Shaikh said that investigations have revealed that the student was being blackmailed by Shaman Solangi and his family, who claimed that Asma and Shaman had secretly married each other. Shaikh said that the Solangi family had prepared a fake nikkahnama to take Asma with them.

He said an FIR was registered against Faiz, Shaman Solangi, and three other people at the Sita road police station under sections 34 (acts done by several persons In furtherance of common intention) and 314 (whoever, with intent to cause harm to the body or mind of any person, causes the death of that or of any other person by means of a weapon or an act which in the ordinary course of nature is not likely to cause death) of the Pakistan Penal Code.

Khalid Jameel Rajput, Asma’s father, told the police that the suspects had been blackmailing her for a while now. The victim has deposited huge amounts of money in their accounts several times.

“We had taken our concern to the local police station before too,” he added.

Subsequently, the Sindh High Court took notice of the case and summoned Hyderabad DIG and Dadu SSP on January 13 along with reports in the case.
