DADU: A man, Zulfiqar Jiskani, was arrested for allegedly killing his wife, Babli Jiskani, 27, in their house located in the Lucky Shah Saddar area near Sann town of Jamshoro district on Friday.

The woman’s brother, Munawwar Jiskani, told the area police that Zulfiqar strangled her to death when she strongly resisted his attempt to hand over the couple’s underage daughter, Humera, to a man for marriage against Rs100,000. He said Zulfiqar had already “sold” his two daughters for money.

SHO of the Chhachar police station, Sajid Gambhir, said the suspect was arrested on the complaint of Munawwar Jiskani and an inquiry into the alleged murder was started.

The woman’s body was handed over to the heirs after a post-mortem examination at Sehwan Hospital.
