The suspect was said to have called her to a place called Oval Maiden. The two sat there for some time, and later on when they had an argument, Salman stabbed her 14 times on her stomach and back, and fled the scene.

“We came to know about the body around 6 am on Tuesday, and around 7 am Umar and Salman were walking near Oval Maidan. Umar immediately identified his daughter and claimed the body in GT Hospital where a post-mortem was conducted.
Later Umar told us that he suspected Salman’s hand in the murder. We examined Salman and found blood on his legs. On questioning, Salman admitted his crime. He told us that he stabbed Nasreen with a knife as he suspected her of having an affair. He said he spent a lot of money on her”.
