‘Kari’ buried as per Islamic way

SUKKUR: After intervention by police, a woman killed by her husband over the pretext of karo-kari in the area of Ghoto Market Ghotki on Thursday was buried as per Islamic tradition at the Kot Bulla graveyard.

Accused Ali Murad Shar strangled his 29-year-old wife Fatima Shar and fled.

On information, the police reached the spot and took the body to the Civil Hospital of Ghotki which had been lying there for three hours but nobody of the Shar community or relative Ali Murad Shar reached there to collect the body.

The woman, who belonged to the Bagri community, had embraced Islam 10 years ago and married Ali Murad Shar after renaming as Fatima Shar.

When nobody from in-laws of Fatima reached the hospital, many members of the Bagri community including Gajjan Shar, father of Fatima, reached the hospital and insisted to take the body, but they were refused.

Later, the body was handed over to Pesh Imam of the mosque of Ghotki police station Muhammad Akram Chachar, asking to burry her according to Islamic tradition. She was laid to rest at the Kot Bullo graveyard.

An FIR has been registered against accused Ali Murad Shar at the Ghotki police station.
