A man hangs his ‘Vani-wife’ to death

LAYYAH: A man thrashed his wife and when she fell unconscious due to the beating he hanged her to death with a tree to make it look like a suicide case in Sohiya Thal in the Kot Sultan area.

The victim was identified as Hattan Bibi. She was given in marriage as Vani to her husband Abdul Majeed by a panchayat after his sister eloped with her brother three years back.

Abdullah, a local villager, said Hattan was 10 years older than Majeed and he had contracted marriage with her only in revenge. They had a two-year old daughter.

Majeed wanted to contract second marriage with another woman but Hattan did not give him permission to do so.

On Monday, he killed Hattan and told police that she had committed suicide.

The investigation officer of Kot Sultan police visited the crime scene and collected evidence which proved that Hattan had not committed suicide. During interrogation, Majeed confessed to killing her.

Police have registered a case against Majeed and his brother Ghulam Fareed and put both of them behind bars.
