Lahore: Woman tortured by husband dies in hospital
LAHORE: A 26–year–old woman who was tortured by her husband on January 28 died of her injuries in the Mayo Hospital on Friday. According to police, Shahzadi, a resident of Bagh Munshi Ludha, Kareem Park, Shafiqabad, had an argument with her husband at her parents home. The argument flared up when Shahzadi demanded money from Babar who worked as an extra in films and could not make enough money. Shahzadi’s demand infuriated Babar who tortured Shahzadi and seriously injured her. While beating Shahzadi, Babar strangled her and she fainted. Babar then fled from the scene.
Alarmed by noise, some locals of the area arrived there and moved Shahzadi to the Mayo Hospital where she died of her injuries. Police have moved the body to City morgue for autopsy and amended the sections of an already registered case on the complaint of the deceased’s father, Muhammad Sarwar. Shafiqabad Police Investigation In charge Haji Abdul Ghafoor told this scribe that police were yet to arrest the killer. He said police had learnt that the late Shahzadi had a good reputation and a noble character. He said the couple often used to argue over domestic issues.
