A man allegedly burnt his wife in connivance with his brother and parents in Rajanpur on Sunday. Um-i-Habiba, the daughter of Rabia from her first husband, said her mother had married Afzal Joya three months ago. She said their relations were sour.
On Sunday, Afzal and his family sprinkled petrol on Rabia and burnt her. Rabia died on the spot. Sadr police have taken the body into custody and arrested four suspects.
