On Monday police arrested Rafiullah, and charged him with the shooting death of Khawaja Sara Gul Pandra as she was returning home from work. Gul Pandra was shot six times point-blank by a masked man on September 9, 2020, in Islamabad, Pakistan.
Her murder, the wounding of her companion Chahat and the rape of a cisgender woman traveling with her children sparked outrage and multiple protests.
Keeping in view the importance of the case, Pakistan Today Reports, Peshawar CCPO Muhammad Ali Gandapur formed an investigation team headed by the Cantt SP which examined the crime from various angles and traced the accused within four days by carrying out the investigation on scientific grounds.
Police report that teams have been formed to arrest remaining accused of the case.
The victim’s name was incorrectly spelled in previous reports. Her name was Gul Pandra.
*In Pakistan, an intersex person is generally identified as transgender. A person identified as a Khawaja Sara is what we in western cultures understand as transgender. However, the terms can be intermittently interchangeable.
