Woman Fatally Poisons Husband And His Family To Escape Arranged Marriage

Instead of him drinking the milk, it was turned into a batch of lassi, a yoghurt drink, and served to his extended family.

Faisal Chingwani, a top human rights activist in the city of Multan, said Bibi apparently committed the crime because she was mentally stressed about the forced marriage.

"Aasia concocted the plot to avenge being married against her will and was provided with poisonous substance by her alleged lover, Shahid Lashari".

But the plot went awry when Amjad, Asiya's husband, did not drink the glass of milk she handed to him, Mr Ali said.

Seventeen people died and 10 are still being treated in hospital, he said. After the incident, police arrested the woman and charged her with murder. Since the drink was served on 27th October, the death toll has risen.

Assia Bibi was married against her will in September in the village of Valvati in central Punjab province. India Today reports that she had previously run away from her parent's home. The man is believed to be Bibi's secret lover, and his aunt has proposed murder. Asiya wanted to stay with them but the parents forcefully sent her back to her in-laws where she tried to take revenge by killing her husband.

Bibi reportedly first claimed that a lizard had fallen into the milk, poisoning it.

The three suspects were later presented before the Anti- Terrorism Court in Dera Ghazi Khan and sent into police custody on a 14-day physical remand, the report said.
