An Australian woman has allegedly been hacked to death with an axe by her father-in-law in northern Pakistan following an argument about bringing her children back home to Australia.
Sajida Tasneem was allegedly gagged and killed in front of her father at a home she shared with her in-laws near the city of Sargodha, 190 kilometres west of Lahore, on June 11.
Tasneem had been pressured by her husband, Ayub Ahmad, to leave their home in Perth and relocate to Pakistan with their three young children.
"She had wanted to return to Australia to give the children a better education, but her parents-in-law had confiscated the family’s passports and opposed the move."- says TSMH report
In a Pakistani police report verified by The Age, Tasneem’s father, 'Sher Muhammad Khan', claimed his daughter had been arguing with her father-in-law, 'Mukhtar Ahmad', about her plans to return to Australia when he attacked her.
Tasneem’s husband was reportedly working in Bahrain at the time.
"Khan told the police he went to the home to meet Tasneem about 1.45pm on June 11 when he heard Ahmad hurling abuse at his daughter. -says TSMH report
He said he rushed into the bathroom, where he found Ahmad had stuffed a cloth in Tasneem’s mouth to muffle her screams and was swinging an axe at her head."- TSMH report further added
