GUJRAT, Jan 13: Police arrested a woman on Tuesday who had allegedly strangled her husband along with the abetment of her alleged lover and another accomplice some one-and-a-half-year ago after the additional district and sessions court judge cancelled her bail.
Accused Aaliya Bibi, her alleged lover Asif and accomplice Jamshed, of Mohallah Shah Husain, were booked by the City-A Division police for strangling Mirza Saad Baig, the husband of Aaliya.
The incident took place on June 2, 2007, but the matter came to light on Dec 5, 2008, when police arrested Jamshed while giving a call to Mirza Zubair Baig, the brother of the deceased, from a public call office that Baig was strangled by his wife and Asif.
Earlier, it was believed that Baig had died of a cardiac arrest. Police arrested Aaliya but released her on a phone call from PML-N MPA Haji Nasir Mehmood. The accused got a bail from the court of Additional District and Sessions Judge Mah Rukh Tarrar some two weeks ago.
The body of the deceased was exhumed three weeks ago and samples were sent for chemical examination to Lahore. Co-accused Muhammad Asif and Jamshed are at large.
