This is so sad!! This 26-year-old British Mayra Zulfiqar, from Feltham, south-west London was attacked by men who shot and strangled her in her rented home in Pakistan after telling her uncle two love rivals had been trying to force her to marry them.

Reports gathered said she was threatened and harassed by her assailants before neighbours discovered her body at the property in the Defence district of Lahore on Monday.

Mohammad Nazeer who happened to be her uncle has filed an incident report with the police, accusing two men Zahir Jadoon and Saad Ameer Butt of being behind his niece’s murder, according to reports.

Mr Nazeer, who visited Ms Zulfiqar a few days before the killing, said she had complained of ‘two friends threatening her with dire consequences and making her fear for her life.

Mr Nazeer has claimed that Ms Zulfiqar was killed by the men with the help of two other unidentified people and is now seeking legal action against them, according to

A case has been registered against the suspects of premeditated murder. A police source said: ‘The woman had a bullet wound to the shoulder but the exact cause of death, whether it was due to the gunshot wound or strangulation, will be known after a post-mortem examination.

‘We have launched an investigation into every aspect of the murder.’ The parents of Ms Zulfiqar, who studied law at the University of West London, are understood to be travelling to Pakistan.
