Police said the cause of the fire was yet to be ascertained; however, no loss of life was reported in the fire.

Man kills wife

A man allegedly stabbed his wife to death one year after the couple contracted a freewill marriage in the Malir Cantonment area on Friday.

Responding to calls, police and rescuers reached a house in Zikria Goth and transported the body of 18-year-old Kainat to Jinnah Postgraduate Medical Centre for an autopsy.

Malir Cantonment police said Kainat and Ali Hassan had been neighbourers and had contracted a freewill marriage one year ago. They said the suspect’s father was a retired employee.
