Islamabad: Wife caught for involvement in husband’s murder
ISLAMABAD: As reported by Dawn News on Friday, the capital police have solved the mystery of the killing of a man in the city’s rural area on October 31 and arrested three persons, including the victim’s wife.
The accused have been identified as the 27-year-old woman, her friend AJ and his cousin NA, the police said, adding the victim was murdered after he suspected illicit relation between his wife and AJ.
The arrested persons were produced before the court of law which handed them over to the Golra police on physical remand.
NAdeem Iqbal was stabbed to death in his house in village Mehra Jaffarin in the early hours of October 31. His wife also received multiple stab wounds.
After hearing the noise, the victim’s neighbours broke into NAdeem’s house and found AJ, who was also his neighbour, and his cousin NA inside a bathroom.
The woman told the people that the two had jumped into her house and entered the bedroom where the couple and their minor child were asleep.
The woman said they stabbed her husband and when she tried to rescue him she was also hit and injured.
The two men told the police that they heard shrieks in the house and jumped into the building to know what was happening and saw two persons stabbing NAdeem. They said when the attackers rushed towards them, they took shelter in the bathroom.
The statement of AJ and NA raised police suspicious. Besides, the victim’s uncle, Wali Dad also suspected that they were behind the killing.
The police picked the two men and during interrogation they revealed that the victim’s wife and AJ had planned the murder.
NAdeem, who operated a mobile shop at G-11 Markaz, phoned his wife the same day but strangely the call was attended by AJ. This made Iqbal suspicious. On returning home, he inquired about the presence of AJ in his house and the reason behind his attending of the phone. When his wife failed to satisfy him, NAdeem threatened her of dire consequences if there was any illicit relation between the two.
Later, the woman and AJ planned the murder with the help of NA. They stabbed the victim in the chest, abdomen and hands more than 25 times.
Besides, they also deliberately wounded his wife. When the neighbours gathered outside the house, the two men failed to escape and hid in the bathroom.
The couple entered into court marriage in Karachi five years back. Later, they moved to Islamabad and settled in the rural area.
