Almaroof Bijli

Almaroof Bijli's body was discovered mutilated and burned near a Gungal busstop on 5th May. She had reportedly been missing for 10 days before her body was discovered, and authorities confirmed that her remains suggested she had died 10 days prior.

While Islamabad police are hesitant to declare Bijli's death a murder, the "mysterious circumstances" she was found in suggest to her loved ones that she was indeed, killed.

Her death was followed three days later by the possibly hate-motivated drive-by shooting of three trans women in Rawalpindi.
