LODHRAN: A man bashed his wife to death in Lodhran for demanding back her dowry, media agents reported on Tuesday.
Amirpur’s resident Gulnaz was married in 2016 to Burhanpur’s resident Allah Rakha. The couple was reportedly having domestic disputes since almost a year, following which Gulnaz had returned back to her parents’ house in March this year.
A panchayat (village council) had decided a few days back that in case a divorce was materialized, Gulnaz would be rightfully allowed to take her dowry back.
Following the panchayat’s final verdict, the woman had attempted paying a visit to Allah Rakha’s house to muster her belongings, where her husband along with his father and other family members bludgeoned Gulnaz to death.
The police registered a case against Allah Rakha and his family members. Gulnaz’s father-in-law was arrested, while Allah Rakha and other suspects are on the run, and investigations underway.
