A man in Badin surrendered himself to police on Wednesday after killing his 38-year-old wife for ‘honor’ by repeatedly hitting her with an axe.
The suspect told police that he suspected that the victim — who was the mother of eight children — had illicit relations with another man who lived in the same area.
Eyewitnesses said that after being attacked, the woman ran out on the street crying for help but the suspect continued to attack her, eventually killing her.
The incident was confirmed by Assistant Sub-Inspector Mohammad Salim Khoso of Badin police.
In a separate incident, a man killed his 25-year-old wife and a mother of one, along with another man for the sake of “honor” in the Dilawar Marfani village of Shikarpur.
