HYDERABAD: A woman died of serious injuries in a hospital after her husband allegedly attacked her with a hammer and a brick in Tando Muhammad Khan’s Peoples Colony on Friday. The alleged killer has been apprehended by the police.
The police, quoting relatives of the deceased, said that 35-year-old Shrimati Kanwal Meghwadh and her husband Mannu Meghwadh used to quarrel often. A relative, quoted by the police, also alleged that Mannu would frequently beat up his wife, with whom he had four children, over minor disagreements.
The police said that Mannu, who escaped after leaving his wife fatally injured on Friday morning following an alleged argument-turned-thrashing, has been arrested.
An FIR of the incident has not been registered by the police yet as they are waiting for the aggrieved family to come forward with a formal complaint, said a police official.
The body has been handed over to the family after a postmortem was performed.
Tando Muhammad Khan SSP told the local media that the police will register the case itself if the deceased’s family does not show up to file a complaint.
