Woman tortured, set ablaze by in-laws

LAHORE: A woman was seriously injured when her inlaws set her ablaze over a domestic dispute in Kotlakhpat police limits on Saturday. The victim was identified as Anam, a resident of Bostan Colony, Kotlakhpat.

The victim’s father, Salahuddin, said Anam was married to Adrees, a resident of Bostan Colony, some two and half years ago. He said her in-laws used to taunt her over minor domestic issues. On Saturday night, Anam argued with her three sister-in-laws over a domestic dispute upon which they, with the help of their brothers, including Amir, Moon, Imran and Adrees, subjected her to severe torture and then set her ablaze.

The victim was rushed to a local hospital where her condition was critical.
