BAJAUR: The police arrested a woman in Inayat Kally area here on Thursday for killing her husband.
According to the statement issued by the district police officer’s office, Kashmir Bibi had shot Gulistan dead over a domestic issue on Wednesday.
She was shifted to a lockup in Khar for investigation.
The woman confessed to the murder and insisted that she killed her husband to revenge the murder of her first husband, Shah Zameen, by him around a year ago.
The police statement quoted the woman as insisting that as she learned that Gulistan poisoned Shah Zameen to death, she first befriended the former and then married him for the revenge killing.
“The accused has no regrets about killing her husband and instead, she looks content,” the statement added.
Meanwhile, the residents flayed the woman’s arrest by policemen and said the act went against the local traditions.
They said the regulations declared that any woman wanted in a case must be dealt by policewomen.
The residents demanded of the government to appoint women police personnel to Bajaur tribal district and set up separate lockups for the women accused.
