The bodies of a woman and child were found at a house in Lahore’s Linton Road.
The police have identified the victims as Ayesha and her five-year-old daughter Amna. Ayesha’s one-and-a-half-year-old son Ahad is missing.
Ayesha was her husband Hassan’s second wife. She lived with her children in a separate house.
The police say the victims were killed four days before their bodies were found. There was a padlock on the house.
They have taken Hassan’s friend Bilal into custody.
Ibrahim, Ayesha’s brother, said he hadn’t spoken to her for a few days. We opened the door with a duplicate key and found their bodies, he said.
