Man kills wife for ‘honour’ in Hasbanpura


A man allegedly killed his wife for honour in Hasbanpura over suspicion of an affair.

According to police reports, Addan of Bassi Mor slit his wife Maria’s throat after tying her arms and legs and left her lying in a pool of blood before escaping the crime scene.

Police investigation has revealed that the couple got married five years back, and had inamicable relations over the last year because Adnan suspected Maria of having relations with a neighbour.

Maria’s parents have revealed that Adnan used to subject her to verbal abuse over petty matters and alleged that he killed her after an argument spiralled out of control.

Police have lodged a case against the accused and shifted the body to the city morgue for autopsy.
