RAWALPINDI: A woman was found beaten to death in her apartment in Sadiqabad on Wednesday.

Police have said they are searching for her husband, who was missing from their residence. The woman’s body was discovered after her mother contacted the police, saying her daughter and her husband were not responding to knocks on the door of their room.

Police said the victim got married some four months ago against her parents’ wishes. They said the woman’s mother had come to her house to see her, and lodged a complaint with the police when her daughter did not respond from inside her home.

Police then went to the house, broke open the door and found the woman dead. The investigating officer told Dawn the victim was beaten to death.

“There was no eyewitness to the murder. The real circumstances in which the woman was murdered can only be known after her husband is traced and investigated,” he said. He added that it was too early to say whether the woman’s husband was involved in the murder, as he is missing.
