Islamabad: A woman was seriously injured
and slipped into coma in Pakistan`s Punjab province after her
landlord unleashed his hunting dogs on her for rejecting his
marriage proposal.

Village locals in Moza Katchi Shukrani said landlord
Pir Buksh unleashed a pack of his dogs on Aliya Bibi.

According to Katchi Shukrani resident Khurram, Pir
Buksh had a longstanding dispute with Aliya`s father
Abdullah, the Express Tribune daily reported.

"A few years ago he sent a proposal for her hand in
marriage but she refused him. Her father also refused the
match and ever since Pir Buksh and his sons have been
threatening her and her family," he told police officials.

On Sunday afternoon, Aliya Bibi was visiting her
neighbour`s house to borrow some flour when Buksh spotted her
and released six of his hunting dogs on her. The dogs chased
the woman through the streets and attacked her, the report
said.

Another local resident said Buksh had been threatening
her and her family for over a year and everyone knew that she
had turned down his proposal because he was already married.

Moza Katchi Police Station House Officer (SHO) Razaq
Bismillah said that he had questioned several people in the
village in this regard.

"When we went to Pir Buksh`s house to take him in for
questioning he had nearly 20 men standing outside with guns. I
have called in a larger police contingent to deal with the
situation," he said.

The ferocious attack by the dogs left the woman with
severe wounds to her neck and her chest. Bibi is currently in
coma in the THQ hospital and doctors have deemed her condition
to be critical.
