LAHORE: A man allegedly killed his wife over a family issue in the jurisdiction of Misri Shah police here on Wednesday.

A police official said Khalid administered poisonous food to his wife Fiza Bibi, a mother of five.

He said as she fell unconscious, Khalid killed her with repeated strikes of a hammer on her head and fled.

The official said Khalid wanted to sell his two-story house but she opposed his decision which led to a brawl between the two sides.

The role of two sons was also suspicious and the police were interrogating them too, he said, adding the body was shifted to the city morgue for autopsy.

The police registered a case.
