Pakistani-Australian woman Sajida Tasneem Killed by in-laws

The murder of a Pakistani-Australian woman by her in-laws on June 12 is under investigation by Punjab Police.

After Sajida Tasneem’s murder, a case was filed, and the primary suspect, her father-in-law, was apprehended. Three more suspects are still on the loose: Sajida’s mother-in-law and two relatives.

Sajida’s father, Sher Muhammad, told authorities that Sajida’s father-in-law was there at the time of her murder.

He claimed that when he arrived to Sajida’s residence to see her, the gate was open and that he heard her father-in-law Mukhtar Ahmad insulting her.

Mukhtar allegedly jammed cotton into Sajida’s mouth before attacking her with an axe, according to him. He claimed Mukhtar urged him not to meddle or he would be killed as well.

Sajida, a mother of three, is said to have studied civil engineering at NED University. She later worked for Pakistan’s Civil Aviation Authority as an assistant air traffic controller.

Around 12 years ago, the Australian national married Ayub Ahmed. Before moving to Australia in 2013, the couple lived in Bahrain and Saudi Arabia.

The couple had just arrived in Pakistan and were staying with Ayub’s parents at the time. Sajida reportedly had problems with her in-laws a few days after her arrival, and she was allegedly tormented by them on several occasions.

According to sources, Sajida wanted to return to Australia for a better education for her children, but her in-laws wouldn’t let her.
