Mother allegedly kills daughters, dies after consuming acid


MULTAN: A woman is said to have allegedly consumed acid after feeding it to two of her daughters following a domestic dispute in Multan Wednesday.


One of the neighbours told the media Tayyaba had a fight with her husband. “After her husband left for work, she fed acid to her daughters Minahil and Hijab, and locked them in a room,” he said.

Later, Tayyaba also consumed acid.

The girls died in the room by the time they were recovered. Tayyaba was rushed to Nishtar Hospital where she breathed her last.

Police is speculating the possibility if Tayyaba and the girls were forced to consume the acid in an attempt to have them killed.

The shopkeeper who allegedly sold the acid was arrested. However, locals in the area managed to free him from police’s custody.

Further investigations are underway.
