A man stabbed his wife to death at a district court in Mingora, Swat for filing for separation.
Thirty-five-year-old Uzma was sitting outside the courtroom waiting for her hearing when her husband, Muhammad Arif, attacked her with a knife.
Her body has been transferred to the Saidu Shareef Hospital for a postmortem examination. Arif was arrested immediately after the attack. A case has been registered against him.
The district bar association has gone on a strike to protest the lack of security at the court.
