The deceased woman has been identified as Shamim, who worked as a nurse at Sheikh Zayed Hospital Rahim Yar Khan.
According to police, the suspect Muneer Ahmed is believed to be a relative of the deceased who had wished to marry her.
The closed-circuit television footage of the incident, which occurred Monday night, shows Ahmed chasing Shamim and trying to stop her forcefully on a road in Rahim Yar Khan’s Scheme 3 area.
Ahmed’s attempt to stop the woman resulted in a tussle between them. At one point, Shamim ran away from him and came in front of a motorcycle, however instead of helping her the motorcycle passengers continued on their path.
Eventually, the suspect assaulted the woman with a knife and left her to bleed to death. He fled from the scene on his motorcycle.
Police have registered a case and further investigation is under way.
