He added: “We have heard of such cases in India but never in Pakistan. The girls’ clothes were torn. We took her down and moved her to hospital. Her body had signs of resistance. We have arrested three individuals who have confessed to the crime.”

One Monday Sky News reported Bibi’s boyfriend of six months had been taken into custody after he confessed to the rape and murder.

Muhammad Saqib is alleged to have confessed to trying to force Bibi to have sex with two of his friends at a wholesale vegetable shop where she worked, but she refused.

Bibi’s horrific death is a chilling echo of a spate of sex crimes which have taken place in neighbouring India.
