Police say 17-year-old was shot dead by her uncle after she refused to lower the volume.
A teenage girl was shot dead by her uncle last week following a row over loud music, police said Tuesday.
The incident happened on Saturday in the Kallar Kahar valley of Punjab’s Chakwal district. “The girl Rehana Bibi was alone at her home and was listening to music when her uncle Muhammad Gulistan … came to her house and asked to lower the volume,” said Sadat Ali, an official on duty at Kallar Kahar police station. “On her refusal, they quarreled and Gulistan shot her dead,” said Ali, adding that Bibi was aged about 17.
Another police official, Ali Akbar, said they were attempting to arrest the killer. Police said they were not aware of any family feud leading up to the attack.
