LAHORE:


The Lahore High Court on Thursday took notice of a report of a woman murdered by her husband for giving birth to six girls.

The Complaints Cell ordered the Sheikhupura district and sessions judge to probe the matter and submit his comments and a report on the steps taken by the police.


Police said Amir had argued with his wife for bearing six daughters and a son.

They said he had previously drowned a 10-day-old daughter in a bucket of water, but the wife had not reported the matter.

The LHC Complaints Cell took notice and directed the D&SJ to look into the matter and submit a report in a week.

@Elizabeth Watson: No matter what you tell people like him they will keep on doing what they want because they know they can and they will never be held accountable for it.
