The Mossos interrogate the father of the murdered sisters in Pakistan

The Mossos d'Esquadra of the victim assistance group at the Terrassa police station questioned Ghulam Abbas, the father of Uruj and Anisa Abbas, aged 21 and 24, on Tuesday. The two sisters who were murdered in Pakistan by a group of men from their family after expressing their desire to break up the marriages that had been arranged for them some time ago.

The National Court has opened some proceedings and since early in the morning, the father of the young women testifies at the local Mossos police station, as confirmed to La Vanguardia, sources familiar with the investigation. An interrogation that was already attempted on Monday night, but was postponed until an Urdu translator was found.

The story, told with absolute coldness for several hours by the 52-year-old man, has introduced some hitherto unknown details that leave significant gaps in the future of the two sisters. Abbas has recounted how he arrived in Catalonia on an undetermined date, settled in the Can Anglada neighborhood of Terrassa, and began to work. He has not been able to specify the date, in 2019 or 2020.

At that time his family was made up of eight people, he with his wife, who how he has a Spanish passport, and six children. Four boys and two girls. While all the children were still in Pakistan, the two daughters got married, according to the father "it was an arranged marriage, to which they did not put up any resistance". Later, the father began the reunification procedures and managed to bring the two girls first, then the mother and finally three of the four sons, because one died.

A few months ago, the father reminded the two daughters that they should start the family reunification process but they refused. The father, as he reported this morning at the police station, does not know whether or not the daughters had a new romantic relationship, or what they did with their lives. What he has said is that the two young women decided to leave home together and that he never heard from them again, until a few weeks ago, a relative told him that his daughters were in Pakistan. "My daughters died the day they left home," he said coldly at the police station.

The father then decided to send his wife and three sons to Pakistan to find out what was going on. The next thing he knew was the murder and arrest of his other three children.
