KARACHI: A 20-year-old woman, mother of a one-year-old girl, was strangled in her Qasba Colony house allegedly by her husband, who fled the scene.
The Pirabad police said that the victim, Marium, wife of Abdus Salam, was found hanging from a ceiling fan and the family initially claimed that the woman had committed suicide.
However, the police said, the medico-legal examination of the body suggested that the woman had been strangled.
