February 28, 2021

Police on Saturday claimed to have achieved a major breakthrough in the murder case of a man, who was recently axed to death apparently in the name of ‘honour’, by declaring that they had found the slain man’s wife.

Abdus Sattar, 26, was axed to death on Thursday at his house in Zia Colony in Korangi within the limits of the Awami Colony police station. His mother and sister were also injured in the incident. The deceased hailed from Sukkur.

Earlier, police had suspected that the murderers had taken Sattar’s wife Farzana away with them but it was later revealed that the wife had managed to escape and taken shelter at another house in Zia Colony.

According to police investigators, the former husband of Farzana was behind the killing. Investigators said Farzana had taken divorce from her husband because of his suspicious nature. She later married Sattar.

Farzana has three children from her first husband, police said, adding that a special police team has been despatched to Kashmore to arrest the fleeing suspect.
