NOWSHERA: The police arrested a woman for allegedly killing her two minor sons in Shadman Colony in the limits of Cantonment Police Station, official said on Wednesday.
Talking to reporters, Superintendent of Police (Investigation) Syed Israruddin said Nosheen Bibi alleged that her husband Kamran was involved in strangulating to death their two minor sons, Moeez (5) and Waeez (3) on Monday night.
He said that the police raided the house of Kamran, who worked in a Gulf country, when he was asleep at his home and during preliminary statement he denied the charges. The SP said the police arrested the woman, Nosheen Bibi, and produced her in the court of the Senior Civil Judge Abdul Jabbar Khan where she confessed to have killed both the sons in a fear of being handed over to her husband. She reportedly told the police that a jirga was to be held the same day to decide the fate of the children. “I did not want to hand over the children to my husband at any cost and that’s why I killed both of them,” the official quoted the accused as saying.
