Aasia Bibi was admitted to the District Headquarters Hospital Okara. Police said Aasia’s in-laws poured petrol over her and set her ablaze at their home. On hearing Aasia’s screams, neighbours rushed to the house to save her and immediately took her to the hospital.
Aasia’s husband, Afzal, was happily married to her, but his family continuously admonished her for remaining childless.
She is said to be in a serious condition and has only managed to survive because she was rushed to the hospital immediately.
A case has been registered at the Saddar Police Station against the suspects and the police have arrested them.
District Police Officer Hasan Asad Alvi visited the hospital to inquire about Aasia’s condition.
Talking to The Express Tribune, Alvi said the suspects had been taken into custody and further investigation into the case was under way.
