Nabeela Ambar’s Murder: KP’s first female taxi driver was killed by husband

Nabeela Ambar, KP’s first female taxi driver, was killed last week by unidentified person. Now KP police claim that her own husband, Abdul Basit, in-fact killed her in yet another case of honour killing. Nabeela was a mother of three children.

Police arrested Basit and recovered the weapon used to murder Nabeela. He will be presented before a judge for remand.

Nabeela broke all social taboos and decided to drive a Careem taxi to earn a living for her children. With this move she had the distinction of being the first-ever female taxi driver from KP.

Gender equality has a long way to go in the conservative society like Pakistan. Nabeela’s case is one among many such cases of honour-killings.
