Karachi: Man murders wife over money dispute
KARACHI: A newly-wed woman was murdered by her husband in her parents’ house in the jurisdiction of the Landhi police station on Wednesday. Khair-un-Nissa, 25, was killed with a sharp weapon by Sabir Hussain. Both of them had been colleagues at a garment factory before they got married two months back.
The parents informed the police after hearing their daughter’s shrieks for help. The suspect was arrested and the body shifted to the JPMC for legal formalities. The previous night, the couple had a fight when the woman refused to hand over to her husband the Rs0.2 million given to her mother for safe keeping by an acquaintance. Hussain had recently become jobless.
