A man strangled and murdered his wife in a village in Jaranwala, Faisalabad on Wednesday.
The woman was a mother of two.
Gul Shahzad’s mother-in-law said he murdered her daughter because he was involved in some illegal activity and she would try to stop him.
Police have registered a case and are searching for Shahzad.
The investigation officer said the deceased married Shahzad five years ago. It was a love marriage, he said.
