WomanBurntToDeathForRejectingMarriageProposal - Woman burnt To Death after Rejecting Marriage Proposal

A Pakistani woman who was set on fire for refusing a marriage proposal has died of her injuries.

Maria Sadaqat, a schoolteacher in her early 20s, was attacked in her home by a group of men on Sunday and died in hospital in Islamabad on Wednesday.
Her family say she had turned down a marriage proposal from the son of the owner of a school she had taught at.

Campaigners say attacks against women who refuse marriage proposals are common in Pakistan.

Chief Minister of Punjab Shahbaz Sharif launched an immediate investigation into the killing, which will report in two days.

Maria’s father has said the school owner was one of the men who attacked his daughter. Police told the BBC that the men beat her and doused her in petrol before setting her alight near the hill resort of Murree, not far from the capital.

She suffered serious burns on nearly all of her body. Local media report that she had 85% burns.
