The girl who was smothered to death in Punjab’s Toba Tek Singh was allegedly sexually assaulted before the murder, her brother and brother-in-law have claimed.

The daughter-in-law was also seen in the viral video.

The killing — which according to the police occurred on the night between March 17 and March 18 – was recorded on a mobile phone camera and the video went viral on social media.

The video shows the accused smothering the victim, Maria, by pressing a pillow on her face for three minutes as she lies on a charpoy. Her brother Faisal and father Abdul Sattar were accused of the murder.

According to the police, the incident happened in Chak 277 JB, Toba Tek Singh.
