Asma Rani, a third-year medical student was murdered on Saturday afternoon in Kohat.
Mujahid Afridi identified as Sadiqullah, killed Asma Rani after she reportedly turned down a marriage proposal. Rani had already named Afridi as her killer in a statement before her death.
Pakistani celebrities took to Twitter to voice their concerns over the matter.
#JusticeForAsmaRani Mujahid Afridi is a cold blooded murderer who must be brought to justice asap. Arresting his brother for aiding his escape is fine but KP authorities must get him deported from Saudi Arabia & get him punished. May Allah's curse be upon you Mujahid Afridi. pic.twitter.com/byL88hK2uU

Okay, so now you’re killed because you say no to a marriage proposal? Wah banday teri Anah ko Salam. I’m actually at a loss of words. RIP Asma, hopefully you will not have died in vain. Maybe someone might take notice and change the system. #JusticeForAsmaRani I feel sick 🙁

No outrage, no hue and cry seems to make a difference to those in power. Only thing that seems to change are the names attached to the hashtags.

Mujahid fled to Saudi Arabia the same day he shot Asma, while Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa police approached Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) to bring him back through the Interpol.
