One of Bano's six children, named Sabreen, said that the man had been stalking her mother and constantly harassing her for the last one year, adding that the family had also filed three police complaints against him.
She also added that the man used to live near their house in Baba Nagar.

The police meanwhile said that they were attempting to find the man.
They also added that when the family had filed a complaint earlier, it was settled due to a compromise between the two parties.
