Mansehra man kills wife for demanding divorce at jirga

MANSEHRA: A man killed his wife after she demanded divorce from him at a jirga held in Munda Chucha area of Siren valley, police said here on Sunday.

“We have arrested a man after he killed his wife who wanted to marry with another man after getting divorce from him,” SHO Shinkiari Mohammad Yasir told reporters.

“As the couple were cousins their families’ elders called an internal jirga to settle the issue, but the woman, mother of one, again raised the demand at the jirga, which forced her husband to fire at her. She died on the spot,” Mr Yasir said.

He said the police arrested the accused.
