MULTAN: A man killed his wife over a property dispute in Multan Friday night, according to local police.
Samia Mai, resident of Mauza Bait Qaim Wala, was married to Abdul Ghafoor a year ago.
Ghafoor, 30, gave 20 marlas of land to his wife Samia, 25, at the time of marriage as a married gift. Mai was legal owner of the property as land was transferred on her name.
Police officials say that the couple used to fight frequently as Ghafoor wanted his land back.
On Friday, Ghafoor along with his brother Jafar Hussain and two other unidentified men entered the house in Daira Deen Panah and shot dead his wife.
However, he informed the chairman of union council, Baitwala, that his wife had attempted suicide.
Police rushed to the scene and shifted the body to the hospital for postmortem, which revealed that Samia did not commit suicide but was murdered.
An FIR has been registered on the complaint of the deceased’s father, Muhammad Bakhsh.
No arrests have been made so far as the investigation is underway.
