A newlywed woman was stabbed to death in Dhoke Chaudhrian on Wednesday by her husband, who then slashed himself with the same knife.
Police and rescue officials reached the spot and sent the body of Mussarat Bibi, 28, for postmortem, while the man, Abid Hussain, was sent to Benazir Bhutto Hospital.
A murder case was filed on the complaint of Bibi’s brother Muhammad Asif.
According to the police, Abid Hussain, a waiter at a local restaurant, married Mussarat Bibi less than two months back. Soon after the marriage, differences developed between the couple as Hussain suspected his wife was having an affair.
Sub Inspector (SI) Raja Saeed, the investigation officer, said the killer is still in hospital but is not critical. “Abid will be arrested after the doctors discharge him from hospital,” he said.
