Pakistani student murders professor over proposed co-ed party: police

A first information report of the incident was registered on the woman's complaint at Mathra police station on March 27, an on-duty police official told DawnNewsTV.

The woman in her complaint to police stated that she had gone to the wedding of her husband's cousin earlier this month. While greeting relatives during the ceremony, she said her dupatta slipped off her head, which was seen by her husband.

She said her after she returned home, her husband — who is a member of the Malakand Levies force — first accosted her over not covering her head and then started beating her with punches and kicks.

“There was no one else in the room except my three-year-old child and so he continued beating me,” the police official quoted the woman as saying. She claimed her husband later grabbed a pair of scissors and chopped off all of her hair.

She said she was filing a complaint of the incident with a delay because her husband had threatened to kill her if she spoke about it with anyone, and it was only now that she found the chance to approach police.

The woman's husband has been nominated in the FIR and police say they are making efforts to arrest him.

The Senate report totted up 33 hydro projects in the border area with Pakistan. The state’s chief minister, Omar Abdullah, says dams will add an extra 3,000MW to the grid in the next eight years alone. Some analysts in Srinagar talk of over 60 dam projects, large and small, now on the books.
