Woman murdered by husband, brother-in-law

Karachi – A mother of a child was murdered by her husband and her brother-in-law at her residence in the Ibrahim Hyderi police limits on Thursday, police said.

Khateeja, 40, was stabbed to death by her husband, Jaffer, and her brother-in-law, Mumtaz, after they had an exchange of heated words. Both suspects fled after the assault.

The neighbours came to their house after hearing their child’s cries and saw the woman in a pool of blood. They informed the police, who took the body to the JPMC for legal formalities. Khateeja married Jaffer three months back and it was her second marriage. The woman had a child from her first husband. The police are yet to determine the motive behind the murder.
