The decomposed body of a woman was found at her home in Mohallah Arainwala in Sheikhupua on Sunday.
Shamaila Bibi’s neighbours said they suspected she had been killed in an acid attack by her husband Ghulam Mustafa, who had been missing for two days.
They said the couple had not enjoyed a good relationship and that they would quarrel every now and then.
City A Division police station house officer Rai Nasir Abbas said their investigation had suggested that the woman was killed in an acid attack. He said they were trying to establish contact with the family of the woman so that an FIR could be registered in the matter.
