SWABI: A woman, whose body was found in pieces in Ghani Kot village of mountainous Gadoon Amazai a couple of days ago, was given in swara a few years back, police and locals said on Monday.

Utla police said Azizur Rehman, father of the deceased woman, got registered an FIR against Taj Bar, the woman’s husband, for killing her and later cutting her body into pieces.

He reported that her head, legs and arms were severed from the body and placed at different places in the lawn of their house.

The police have yet not arrested the accused persons.

However, Mohammad Amin, father-in-law of the victim, and Radur Rehman, cousin of Taj Bar, have been arrested.

Local residents claimed that the killed woman was given in swara in 2002 and that the couple had five children.

Police said the preliminary investigations revealed that the accused killed her with the help of three or four accomplices.

Sources said the accused suspected her wife to have illicit relations with someone else.
