‘Honour’ crime: Man thrown acid at ‘by in-laws’

By: Owais Jafri

MULTAN: A 24-year-old man in Jatoi, Muzaffargarh, was thrown acid at on Sunday allegedly by his in-laws for not making up with his wife, who had left his house following a quarrel.

The injured was taken to Nishtar Hospital, where doctors treating him said that his condition was critical.

Baitmeera Hazaar police have registered a case against the victim’s wife, mother-in-law and their three relatives nominated by the victim’s father, Hazoor Bakhsh. No one has been arrested.

Police said Muhammad Liaqat, a resident of Baitmeera Hazaar, had married Sumaira Bibi a year ago.

Two weeks ago, they quarrelled and she left home and returned to her parents’ house. Police said some neighbours said that she and her mother-in-law did not get along well.

Police said Sumaria Bibi’s parents had demanded that Liaqat and his parents visit their house and apologise for “insulting their daughter”. Liaqat and his parents had refused to do so.

Liaqat’s brother, Muhammad Jafar, said on Sunday, his mother-in-law Fatima Bibi and three men entered their house and beat Liaqat up. They later threw a jug full of acid at him.

Jafar said he heard his brother scream for help. He said he saw the assailants flee as he entered Liaqat’s room.

Liaqat was taken to the hospital, where he was reported to be in critical condition. Doctors treating him said that he had 60 per cent burns.

Jafar claimed that some of Sumaira Bibi’s relatives had earlier made threatening calls to them “for throwing her out of the house”.

He said Liaqat had visited her parents’ house to bring her back, but they had told him to leave and that he should bring his parents along.

Police said they were investigating.
