Karachi: Teenage girl’s suicide
KARACHI: A teenage girl who married just four months ago took her own life following an altercation with her in-laws on Wednesday, police said. Laila, 15, wife of Sabir, wanted to visit her family in Peshawar but was not allowed to do so by her in-laws. Disheartened, she locked herself in a room and hanged herself from a ceiling fan. When her mother-in-law knocked on her door afterwards, she received no response over which she called her husband, who broke the door open and saw her body hanging. They took the body to the AbbasiShaheed Hospital, where a doctor confirmed her death. The family did not register any case.
