JHANG: Police allegedly tortured to death a woman before her minor kids in chak 166/Dabwala on Thursday. According to a citizen named Ghulam Haider, cops of Mochiwala police entered his house and tortured to death his wife when she raised a hue and cry. He said then the police shifted her body to the DHQ hospital and closed the emergency gate of the hospital. He said the police wanted to get the autopsy report in their favour.
