Woman reported to have committed suicide was murdered, say police


KARACHI Oct 12 (TNS): A woman — whose body was found hanging by a noose in the metropolis’ Liaquatabad a few days ago — was murdered, it was reported on Thursday morning, refuting earlier media reports that she had died by suicide.

Sana, 27, was an officer of Sindh Police’s Special Security Unit (SSU) and had married a man of her own free will some months back. Her body was found on October 8 with a rope around her neck in the city’s Liaquatabad No. 10 area, authorities said.

Law enforcement agencies on Thursday explained that Sana was killed by way of suffocation. They said the deceased’s husband Jahanzeb and father-in-law have been arrested, while a case has been registered as well.

According to the father-in-law — one of the two arrestees, the couple often used to have arguments, which started soon after their wedding.

He went on to say that the family was sleeping when Sana allegedly took her own life.

An investigation in this regard is consequently underway, police stated.
