A man ruthlessly killed his wife by slitting her throat with a sharp edged knife in the precincts of the Aabpara Police Station near Qadri Market on Thursday.
An Aabpara police officer said Rabnawaz killed his wife Shazia Begum by cutting her throat and then fled from the scene. He said Rabnawaz had contracted this second marriage only a few months ago but the couple had failed to develop understanding and they were often fighting with each other. “On Thursday, they exchanged harsh words with each other, after which Rabnawaz cut her throat, killing her instantly,” they said.
The police officer also said that Shazia was a low grade employee of the Capital Development Authority (CDA). Rabnawaz’s son informed the police that his father had killed his stepmother, said the officer, adding that a case had been registered against Rabnawaz who had managed to flee from the scene.
