A sad incident has claimed the life of a woman in Pakistan.
According to Daily Pakistan, the woman was allegedly murdered by her husband in Chuhng area here on Wednesday in a most shocking manner, police said.
The report states that the victim Noreen, 25, a resident of Shahdara, was married to Abid Ali, almost eight months back. It was Abid’s second marriage. However, things weren’t going fine for the two.
On the day of the incident, the accused informed police that his wife has been bitten by a snake and had died. However, the police officers were not convinced.
“Abid told police that Noreen was asleep when the snake had bitten her”, the official said.
He told us that he had killed the snake with a stick.
“His statement appeared to be contradictory so we took him into custody. We questioned him further and he confessed to the murder,” a police official said.
“He said that he had first drugged his wife and then strangled her with a rope. He also told us that he had purchased a snake three days ago and left it on Noreen’s bed. It had bitten her on the arm.”
Police said the autopsy report had confirmed that the victim had died from suffocation.
However, it was later discovered during the investigation that the man had coerced his wife to follow him to the fields where he eventually threw snakes at her and allowed them to bite her.
The police plans to take action against him in accordance with the law.
