Woman demands justice as former-in laws allegedly murder husband


SHABQADAR: A woman has urged the police to protect her by arresting her former in-laws, whom she accuses of killing her husband.

Zaibun Nisa, the widow of Gul Khan, told local media in Shabqadar on Tuesday that she had been forcibly married to Akbar Khan at a very young age, and that she was the daughter of a prayer leader in the Baffa area of Mansehra.

She added that her husband and in-laws treated her like a slave, and kept her in horrible conditions at home after her husband divorced her.

After some time, Gul Khan took her to Karachi and married her. Gul returned to Mansehra to pay her former in-laws Rs0.2 million and an Ox for her.

The couple went to Saudi Arabia where they lived for nearly 20 years, before returning back in 2017 to build a house in the Baffa area where Nisa claims, her former in-laws killed her husband, Gul.

Nisa said that although the police had registered a first information report (FIR) against the suspects, they had yet to arrest them and were instead, facilitating the murderers of her husband.

The widow along with her two children had since then, sought shelter in Shabqadar, and has requested the Hazara Deputy Inspector General of Police (DIG) and former Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa (KP) chief minister for help.
