Woman drowned her children in a water tank after fight with husband
RAIWIND: A woman killed her two children, daughter and son, by drowning them in a water tank and sustained critical wounds herself by attempting suicide.
According to details, the incident occurred in Raiwind’s Salamat Pura area where 27-year-old Naheed, following a dispute with her husband, killed her five-year-old Mehrooba and four-year-old Ehtasham at 04:00 am and cut her own throat with a knife but survived.
Naheed, who tried to kill herself, told the police that she came to her parents’ home in Raiwind after a clash with her husband, Nasir. Her husband and his family came to Salamat Pura to settle the dispute but to no avail. Naheed took the extreme step while other family members were asleep.
