During the episode of Fourth Grade aired today Friday 9 July we return to talk about the case of Saman Abbas, the 18-year-old disappeared in Novellara after opposing an arranged marriage. In a July 2 interview broadcast in the evening, 21-year-old Saqib returns to the hypothesis of his girlfriend’s escape. He himself had asked the investigators just a few days ago to look for Saman while alive. “I always hoped he would come home – tells during the interview -. I don’t think she was killed at all. I feel it didn’t happen that way. I think she ran away and could have been an aunt to take her out of Italy. “In providing this last detail he hesitates, but declares himself sure of what is being told.” We must look for Saman alive. She is somewhere, I’m sure. “Yet from the very beginning of the affair involving the 18-year-old, the boy had reported continuous violence against his girlfriend. Saman had confided to him that his family had intended to kill her.
According to Saqib in this new version, the girl was taken abroad in an attempt to remove her from him. Her parents weren’t going to kill her just because the boyfriend she chose was of Pakistani descent. “They told me:” we have the same origins, we can talk about it. “Then they told me that teveryone would have come back if I had convinced her to go home when she left to go to the community after the first complaint. She can’t be dead. She had come home to get her papers. He wanted to marry me and then start a new life together. His intention was to leave Italy. Even the community in which she had lived for months was close to her now. She wanted to dress Western and live a normal life. Her parents were initially against it, but then it seemed that they were willing to compromise in order to have her back in the family. For this reason I can’t believe it turned out like this. Saman is alive somewhere, I can feel it. “
