LAHORE: Police has arrested a heartless man, who allegedly killed his six-year-old daughter on behest of his second wife here on Tuesday.
According to police, one Khurram and his second wife have been taken into custody and a case has been lodged against them under the article 302 of PPC for killing the toddler, Alishba.
Khadija – suspect Khurram’s first wife and mother of Alishba – has alleged that his ex-husband and his wife tortured the six-year-old to death. She said her five-year-old second daughter was not safe under their custody also.
Khadija demanded of the authorities to grant her the custody of her second daughter.
Khadija’s father Muhammad Tahir told media that her granddaughter Alishba and her sister were taken away by Khurram a year ago, adding that Khaidja had been barred from meeting her daughters for the last five months.
Local police have lodged an FIR against Khurram and his wife under 302 and launched an investigation into the matter.
A post-mortem report of the six-year-old would help unfold the mystery surrounding the death.
