LARKANA, Oct 3: A woman who had married a man she loved about six months ago was found dead in Ali Khan Brohi village on Tuesday. The Ratodero police said the body of Zakia was recovered from the house of her husband, Mohammad Brohi, on report of Araz Mohammed Langah, the father of the woman. The man along with other family members escaped from the house.

Parents of the woman said that her husband and other in-laws had brutally tortured their daughter to seek her consent for the second marriage of her husband. They said that Mohammed Brohi had already been engaged to a woman of his clan. Doctors said that she had been brutally hit in the head due to which she died. They said that there were also marks of severe torture on several parts of her body. Police picked up Rehmat Brohi, the brother of the deceasedÂ’s husband for interrogation. However, he was quite unaware of the incident as he was in Balochistan when it had taken place. Sources told Dawn that the woman had continuously been tortured in the house and when her condition deteriorated some doctor had treated her but she could not survive.
