A husband hanged his pregnant wife in Faisal Town, Lahore, Pakistan, because she refused to obey his decision to abort their baby when they discovered it was a girl.
Mian Faisal Shahzad, a lawyer by profession, got married to Masmaat three years ago and they have a son. Masmaat took in again and was expecting a girl.
After finding out the baby Masmaat was carrying was a girl, Faisal wanted her to abort it but she objected, according to reports. Masmaat’s refusal resulted in constant arguments and fights between the couple.
One night, Faisal got drunk and took his wife’s life by hanging her from a fan.
The Faisal Town police responded to the crime scene and arrested Faisal while the body of the victim was taken to the Jinnah Hospital.
An investigation has been launched.
