KOT GHULAM MUHAMMAD:
The police have arrested a woman, Naheed, and her cousin, on charges of killing her husband Nizamuddin Mayo, a religious teacher at a mosque in Rathban Mayo village.
Nizamuddin had married Naheed, a resident of Mirpurkhas, two years ago. However, a year into the marriage, the relationship hit the rocks and Naheed began asking for a divorce. Nizamuddin lived in a rented space over the mosque where he used to teach the Holy Quran to children.
He left the house after sehri on July 26 and returned three hours later to find his wife’s cousin and his sister there. He went straight to bed and asked his wife to wake him up later.
As Nizamuddin slept, Naheed and Abdul Latif tied a rope around his neck and asphyxiated him. Abdul Latif’s sister, who was standing aghast in the kitchen, witnessed the entire episode. The police arrested the murderers in Kotri. A case has been registered against the suspects.
