In addition to penile hyperexcitability, 80-year-old Ghulam Hasan showed signs of inarticulation and hypersalivation, the police said.
Police have held the woman, Naheed, responsible for what Pakistani society is calling a “heinous act”. She is the wife of the victim’s son Bilal Hasan, who told the police that he had left his wife with his father to take care of the 80 year-old man. Naheed was the last person who had seen the victim alive.
On 9 October, Bilal left his wife for work, leaving his wife with his father. According to Bilal, his wife was not reluctant to serve the aged man. Bilal said he had left his father with his wife earlier and this was usual in the family.
On returning from work, Bilal found his father dead and immediately informed the police. He said that his father was quite healthy before he had left home.
The police, after investigation, told the press that Naheed, who had been present at the crime scene, was in fact the culprit. The attacker was caught after some samples of semen and vaginal fluid were found near the body.
The forensic report described how Naheed might have been involved in the act. The tests confirmed her involvement in the violent sexual act.
Police rook Bilal’s wife Naheed into custody where she confessed to the crime. She admitted forcing her sick father-in-law seven times in a row that day. She said that her husband could not satisfy her sexually.
Naheed has been charged with sections dealing with rape and murder of her father-in-law Ghulam Mohammed Hassan.
According to Naheed, she had been raping her father-in-law for the last two months and blackmailing him to silence.
Naheed told the police that she never wanted to kill her father-in-law and that the death was accidental. She is now in police custody awaiting her trial. Given the kind of legal regime of the country, this woman from Pakistani Punjab can be predicted to spend years up to her old age in jail.
