In a failed attempt to poison the man she had been ordered to marry in Pakistan, a woman has killed 15 of her in-laws…. The 21-year-old suspect who has been arrested, Aasia Bibi, was forced to marry Amjad Akram against her will in September.
The new wife, who was allegedly in love with another man, hatched a plot to kill her 25-year-old husband by poisoning his glass of milk – two months into the unhappy marriage…
According to reports, her husband Amjad did not consume the drink and Aasia’s mother-in-law unknowingly used the tainted liquid to make Lassi – a popular traditional yogurt-based drink which was then served to 27 of Amjad’s family members who, after drinking it, started to show symptoms of poisoning.
Fifteen people died in hospital because of the severe intoxication while 12 others are still critical.
The incident took place in Daulat Paur area in Muzaffargarh and was reported on Sunday
