A 29- year-old Pakistani American girl Sania Khan murdered by her ex-husband in Chicago, USA. Sania used to make TikTok videos about the stigma of divorce in South Asian communities. As per the suntimes.com, a man travelled from his home in Georgia and fatally shot his ex-wife in her condominium in Streeterville Monday afternoon before turning the gun on himself as officers tried to get inside, according to police reports.
Officers arrived at the building in the 200 block of East Ohio Street around 4:30 p.m. after police in Alpharetta, Ga., requested a well-being check on Raheel Ahmad, 36, the reports state. His family had reported him missing from the Atlanta suburb, where he lived.
Domestic violence continued to surge in Chicago and across Illinois, last year as pandemic-induced isolation and economic uncertainty made it harder for victims to get help, according to a report released earlier this month.
A statewide domestic violence hotline received nearly 30,000 calls in 2021, up 5%, and the number of murders and shootings involving domestic relations in Chicago increased nearly two-thirds from 2020, according to the report by The Network, a Chicago-based advocacy organization.
