However, doctors at the hospital said that the woman had been strangled before being hanged, the police added.
DSP Malik said that a visit to the victim’s house suggested that a struggle had taken place in the kitchen. A wire was also found in the kitchen, which had apparently been used for strangling her, he added.
The police detained the husband for questioning. The victim, a mother of two, originally hailed from Swat.
