A woman killed her two-year-old daughter after a dispute with her husband in Karachi on Monday afternoon.
Shakeela, 28, threw her daughter in the sea near Captain Farhan Ali Shaheed Park in DHA’s Phase 8. The body was found on Tuesday.
She said that she killed her daughter because she couldn’t see any future for her. “My husband said that he can’t keep us [Shakeela and her daughter] at his house, so I went to my parents’ house. They said that they have gotten me married and I can’t stay at their house.”
A case has been registered under Section 302 (punishment for murder) of the Pakistan Penal Code, 1860 at Sahil police station.
Her in-laws maintained that she was psychologically disturbed.
However, the investigating officer Syeda Ghazala doesn’t agree with her in-laws.
“She doesn’t look like psychologically disturbed,” Ghazala told SAMAA TV. “She is tense and looks worried.”
The police official said that the woman also tried to commit suicide after killing her child. “She did this because nobody was ready to accept the child.”
Shakeela has completed her BBA and she married Muhammad Rashid Shah in 2011. She lived in Sultanabad.
