Punjab police rescued a woman from Hafizabad who had been held captive in a small room for almost ten years by her brothers over an inheritance dispute.

According to reports, her neighbours, who couldn’t sleep because of her heart-wrenching screams, gave the details of her location to the police who rescued her.

The police revealed that Naila Bibi’s brother gave her food only once a week and did not clean her room. When she was rescued, her bed was covered with her own excrement.


While some reports state that one brother has been arrested, others say that two brothers have been arrested by the police.

Naila Bibi was sent to the hospital for a medical check-up with the help of a neighbour. She appeared to be suffering from significant physical and psychological trauma from the captivity.
