Hearing her son’s scream, Shaheer’s mother, Shazia dashed into the room where both parents threw blankets and clothes on the burning child in a desperate attempt to extinguish the flames, but their efforts were not enough to save him.
After grieving over the loss of her son for two days, Shazia filed a case against her husband and he was arrested on 17th September.
Speaking on the incident the Local Police officer, Salim Khan told Pakistan news outlets that Nazir has confessed to the crime filed against him by his wife.
He noted that Nazir became enraged when Shaheer insisted on going out to fly a kite instead of completing his homework.

Angered by the response, Nazir poured the highly flammable liquid over the kid and lit a match in a bid to scare him.
