A pharmacist was killed by his wife by pushing him down from a fifth-floor balcony after learning about his second marriage, Gulf News reported.
The dispute between the couple arose after he got married again. The victim's wife is said to have called her father, brothers and some “thugs” to her house to force her husband to divorce his second wife.
However, the report stated, when he refused they severely beat him up before throwing him from the balcony of the fifth floor in front of his son.
The victim is said to be working outside Egypt and returned to the country for vacation. The unnamed victim’s family accused their daughter-in-law and her family of killing their son after torturing him to divorce his second wife and sign some papers in favour of his first wife.
After he surrendered to their demands, the victim was thrown off the balcony. Then they took his body to a hospital alleging that he had committed suicide.
However, upon questioning, the victim’s wife and her family appeared confused, which raised police suspicion. Upon interrogation, they admitted to killing him, the report further said.
