Mystery about woman’s death solved

The mystery surrounding the discovery of a 22-year-old woman’s body in the Gogera Branch Canal about 10 days ago has been solved, according to police.

The victim, Irum Safdar, was allegedly killed by her husband, Salim, who then disposed of her body in the canal, police said.

Irum’s body was found in the canal in Chak # 485 GB area under the jurisdiction of Mureed Wala Police Station.

The police had taken custody of the body and launched a search for her relatives. They eventually managed to locate them.

According to the victim’s brother, Salim had killed his sister due to alleged doubts about her character.

The Sadar Samundri police have registered a case against Salim under Sections 302 and 311 of the PPC and are attempting to apprehend him.

Following the investigation, Irum’s body was handed over to her relatives, and the authorities are working to ensure that justice is served in the case.

Less than a week ago, a man had killed his daughter-in-law and injured his grandchildren, police said.

In a separate incident, a man had strangled his wife on suspicion over her character, they said.

Police seized the bodies, registered cases and arrested the suspects.

Eighty-year-old Mohammad Ali, a resident of Chak No. 215 RB Nethari area of Saddar Police Station, had had an argument with his daughter-in-law, Nasira Bibi, 45, over children taking milk.

As a result of this quarrel, Mohammad Ali allegedly stabbed his daughter-in-law Nasira Bibi and her children, 16-year-old Usman, eight-year-old Noman, 12-year-old Maryam and five-year-old Khadija, while they had been asleep, police said.

The injured were shifted to the Civil Hospital.

As soon as information about the incident was received, the Saddar Police reached the spot and seized the body of the slain woman. The police arrested the suspect along with the murder weapon and opened their investigation.

In another incident, Ijaz Ahmad, a resident of Chak No. 86 Tehsil, District Sargodha, told the police that his sister had married Mohammad Ali 12 years ago.

The couple had three children, Bilal, Rabia and Usman.

Ijaz Ahmed told the police that suspect Mohammad Ali strangled his sister while she had been asleep.

The suspect later surrendered before the police.

Police seized the body of the deceased and handed it over to her heirs after postmortem.

In Chichawatni, a 55-year-old woman and her 24-year-old adopted daughter had been strangled this month.

Police said that the 24-year-old deceased had married Abu Sufyan five years ago against the wishes of her maternal uncles.

Police said that the other deceased, Rashidan Bibi, 55, a working woman, had been a widow who had had no children of her own so she had adopted Rabia Bibi, who was a daughter of one of Rashidan’s relatives.

Rashidan Bibi had also adopted a boy who had now become a grown up man with a wife. Rashidan Bibi had been living with her adopted son and his wife.
