`Woman killed by former minister was not dancer`

MANSEHRA: The woman allegedly killed by former provincial minister Ibrar Hussain alias Iqbal was a Quran teacher and not a dancer, claimed her husband on Friday.

`The influential people involved in the murder of my wife, Kiran Nagina, distorted reality to escape punishment. She wasn`t a dancer and instead, she had memorised the holy Quran in Arabic and used to give its lessons to Muslim children here,` Sajid Hussain told reporters here.

He said he along with his wife had shifted to Mansehra from Azad Jammu and Kashmir almost10 years ago.

Mr Sajid claimed that the woman co-accused had borrowed money from his wife and later got her killed.

`That woman [coaccused] came to my house on August 11 evening and deceived Kiran into going with her to a house, where she was killed,` he insisted.

The deceased`s brother said his family belonged to Neelum district in Azad Jammu and Kashmir and his sister was killed over a loanissue.

He urged the police bosses to ensure the exemplary punishment of killer(s). Correspondent
