A Sialkot woman has been released from jail after two witnesses retracted their statements in the murder case of a five-year-old child.

The child was killed was May 12. Her mother was accused of drowning her in a bathtub. A case was registered against her by her husband, Usman Ghani.

The witnesses told the police that the woman tried to drown her two daughters, one five-year-old and another one-and-a-half-year-old, in a bathtub. The infant was saved but the other died.

The woman reportedly confessed to the murder saying that she took the step because she was tired of her husband’s constant taunts over not having a son. She claimed that they fought over their children every day.

The woman was arrested and presented in court. Her physical custody was handed over to the police.

On Wednesday, the husband took back his complaint and the witnesses retracted their statements.

Neighbours, however, have demanded that an investigation should be launched into the murder of the child and the police should ensure that justice is served.
