A young woman’s in-laws tried to kill her in Sukkur for giving birth to a daughter.
The 18-year-old woman was left at her parent’s house after the attempted murder. Her daughter is safe.
The woman married a police officer of the Shikarpur police. When she gave birth to a daughter, he, his sister, father and brother attacked her and slit her throat and wrist. She survived the attack and is now at her parents’ house.
Shaista Khoso, a social worker, accused the local police of trying to save their colleague by not registering a case. She said they are demanding a bribe to register the case.
The Chak police say that the family hasn’t approached the police to register a case yet.
