LAHORE: A six-year-old girl died allegedly in Iqbal Town on Tuesday after being beaten up by her father and step-mother. Police have registered a case against Khurram and his second wife Ghania, residents of Kashmir Block, on the complaint of the former’s first wife, Khadija. “Khadija told us that her daughter got up late at night to go to the washroom. This infuriated his father who beat her so badly that she fainted. She was taken to nearby hospital where doctors pronounced her dead,” police said.
