Woman Held for Trying to Cook Chopped Body of Husband

A Pakistani woman has been arrested for allegedly killing her husband, chopping off his body parts and attempting to cook them.

Police in the Pakistani city of Karachi announced on Friday that they arrested 32-year-old Zainab Bibi. Bibi allegedly received help from her nephew, Zaheer Ahmed, in killing her husband, Ahmad Abbas, on Tuesday. According to authorities, Bibi tried to hide the crime by cooking the chopped body parts of her deceased husband, but neighbors alerted police after foul odor started engulfing the neighborhood.

Bibi, who is detained at the police station, reportedly did not deny killing her husband, saying that she did it to protect her daughter, with whom the victim allegedly tried to have physical relationship with. CNN said the suspect did not show any remorse in killing her husband. “I killed my husband before he dared touch my daughter,” Bibi reportedly told local TV channel ARY news.
