Woman takes last breath after being ‘burnt by husband’

LAHORE - A 25-year-old woman breathed her last on Sunday after what her parents told the lawmen that she was burnt by her husband couple of weeks back.
Parents of the deceased staged a protest demonstration in front of Punjab Assembly and chanted slogans against their son-in-law and police. They blamed the police were not taking action against the accused.
Some fifteen days ago Sadaf, 25, was admitted to a public hospital after she was tortured and burnt by her husband Ali Malik in the Ghaziabad police station limits. She remained under treatment in hospital and in the meanwhile her husband managed to flee somewhere unknown.
On Sunday, she expired due to excessive bleeding. Parents of the deceased took her dead body to Punjab Assembly and staged a protest demonstration.
However, Ghaziabad SHO Attique said nobody asked the police to take legal action against the accused. He also claimed as per preliminary interrogation Sadaf was burnt by boiling milk while she was working in kitchen.
