Bahanu Rizwan, the 12-year-old girl who died in the blasts that rocked this town on September 8, was a resident of the Islamabad locality of the city and not a Pakistani national, police said on Monday.

The girl belonged to the Islamabad locality in the town and has nothing to do with the Pakistani capital, they said.

The residents of the Islamabad locality had earlier claimed that Sajida was a native of Pakistan. Sources had claimed that the family members of the girl perfomed her last rites at the Bada Kabarastan itself and returned to Islamabad.
