A woman was arrested for murdering her husband in Swat’s Mingora, the police said on Saturday.
The victim, Murad Ali, was found dead one-and-a-half months back. An FIR of the case was registered at the Rahimabad police station.
During interrogation, the suspect and her son confessed to the crime.
“Murad used to beat us up every day,” she told the police. “One day, when the assault got worse, my son opened fire and killed him.”
The criminal record of the woman reveals that she was named in the murder case of her ex-husband six years back, said the Investigation Officer.
The suspects are in custody and the police has started questioning them. Further investigations are underway.
