VEHARI: Four sisters, who jumped to death in a local canal, were laid to rest in their native village amid grief and tears.
According to reports, the girls, aged between 25 and 40, were frustrated for being remained unmarried despite their growing age.
Resident of Kahror Pakka, the father of ill-fated girls, Bashir said they were not beset with poverty or deprived of money; nor were they facing any grave trouble that could have caused them to take up that extreme step.
The girls’ brother asserts his sisters used to frequently visit the house of their grandparents. Their mother is also taken aback at the grim step by her daughters.
In contrast, the neighbors unfold the other side of the story, noting the girls used to ask the father for their marriage; but, he would manhandle them instead of shouldering this vital responsibility.
