SIALKOT: The in-laws allegedly killed a newly wed girl as punishment for not bringing their desired dowry. This nasty incident occurred in Daska city’s congested Muhallah Mughalpura here Monday.

As per police, 25 years old Takreem Bibi was married to a youth Imran Mughal about three weeks ago. After this marriage, her in-laws started quarrelling with her and beating physically for not bringing their desired dowry. She belonged to a poor family. Today (Monday), her in-laws also beat her badly and forcibly poured acid in her throat, due to which her condition became very critical. Neighbours took her to Daska Civil Hospital, where she passed away.

Local doctors said that she died due to acid.

City Daska police are investigating with no arrest. The accused in-laws fled away after locking up their homes.

It was the second nasty incident of its kind during the last five days in Daska tehsil here.
