Iqra Saeed, a 22-year-old model, passed away on Tuesday due to an overdose of drugs. She traveled to Lahore from Karachi in order to pursue a career in modeling.
According to doctors, Iqra was drugged before she was left at the hospital by three men who were identified as Usman, Hasan Butt, and Umar Raza Butt. All of whom are said to be residents of Lahore’s Gulshan-e-Ravi area.
It was reported that two days ago, the men had escaped after leaving Iqra at the Government Teaching Hospital Shahdara.
As Iqra’s body was shifted to the funeral home for post-mortem, doctors believe that the deceased was given some sort of soporific that caused her death.
Meanwhile, police told that an FIR has been filed against the three men and they are investigating the case too.
As per the initial investigation conducted by Shahdara Police station, a call was made from the hospital to the police a couple of days ago informing them about the model being brought in.
The police said:
“According to our investigation, the model had been forcefully intoxicated by the three men that dropped her off at the hospital – Usman Rafique, Umer Butt, and Hassan Butt.”
It was further revealed that Iqra’s identity was confirmed using her phone.
The police added:
“We spoke to her father who revealed that she was from Karachi but had moved to Lahore to work as a model against her parents’ will. We have registered an FIR against the three men who dropped Iqra off a the hospital. We can only provide you with further details after their arrest. However, we can state that it seems like a murder case.”
