FAISAL­ABAD—A ruth­less man set on fire his daugh­ter and her two chil­dren over prop­erty dis­pute here on Thurs­day. Po­lice said the in­ci­dent took place in vil­lage 153-RB of tehsil Chak Jhumra in district Faisal­abad where a piti­less per­son set his daugh­ter and her two chil­dren Kainat 13, and Ghu­lam Mustafa Khan on fire for de­mand­ing share in prop­erty.

The af­fectees were rushed to Al­lied Hos­pi­tal Faisal­abad, where con­di­tion of mother and daugh­ter was stated to be se­ri­ous. The scorched Ghu­lam Mustafa Khar blamed that his pa­ter­nal grand­par­ents set them on fire by sprin­kling petrol over prop­erty is­sue.

The cul­prit has re­jected the al­le­ga­tions and claimed that her daugh­ter at­tempted self im­mo­la­tion af­ter be­ing re­fused to be pro­vided share in prop­erty. How­ever, the po­lice af­ter reg­is­ter­ing a case into the in­ci­dent at re­spec­tive po­lice sta­tion have started an in­ves­ti­ga­tion.—INP
