RAWALPINDI: A 25-year-old woman was strangled to death allegedly by her husband here on Friday.

Tayyaba, 27, a resident of Al-Noor Colony, complained to the Airport police that her father had died while her mother was a diabetic and hypertension patient.

She said her mother Gulshan Bibi called her husband Liaquat Ahmad on his mobile phone at 1am and informed him that Mohammad Basharat, the husband of her sister Maryam, had left his two children at the house of her aunt (mother’s sister) at Koral Chowk.

She said Basharat instructed her aunt to keep his children in the house since he had allegedly strangled his wife to death.

And after telling her about the incident, he left the house in panic.

She said shortly afterwards, she along with her husband went to her sister’s house and found the door shut from outside.

She said as they opened the door, they found her sister lying dead on the ground with her dupatta wrapped around her neck.

She claimed that her brother-in-law Basharat had been torturing her sister over domestic issues.

She said Rescue 1122 shifted the body to the District Headquarters Hospital for postmortem.
