A man has been arrested by the police in Lahore, Pakistan after finding out that his wife is having a female child.
According to reports, the deceased’s brother, Ali Ahmed, said that after the reveal via scan, he persuaded her to get an abortion, a pressure she refused to succumb to.
To die down the matter, he hanged her and made it look like a suicide.
Ahmed claims that his sister had complained that her husband did not want a female daughter, a decision which led her father to suggest that “if you don’t want a daughter you can give her to us.”
The deceased was his second wife after his first failed marriage. He had three children from his first marriage.
The DSP Saleemullah Lashari has said that the police will investigate the matter after getting the post-mortem and forensic report.
