Police are said to have ignored her repeated requests for help with regards to death threats she was receiving from the suspect, according to Dawn.com.

Ms Zulfiquar, originally from Feltham in south west London, had also alleged that the other suspect – Saad Butt, 28 – had tried to sexually assault her after she refused to accept his marriage proposal. She is reported to have been friends with both men.

Police investigators say Mahira left her family in London after developing differences with them over marriage issue.

The Briton was found dead on Monday (May 3), suffering bullet wounds to her neck and arm, a postmortem revealed.
It is thought the Mahira was killed after four men broke into the rented apartment in Lahore where she was staying with a friend, having moved there from the UK.

Police believe the killing was a ‘crime of passion’ carried out after Mayra rejected marriage proposals from two of her alleged attackers.

Police officials have also revealed that Ms Zulfiquar uploaded objectionable photographs of Jadoon on social media after they had an argument, which angered him.
