Pakistani bride kills 17 in botched plot to poison husband

Malik Owais Ahmed, District Police Officer, said: "When police established the suspicion that this is not a case of using contaminated lassi but it is a case of homicide and a case of intentional murder then police arrested her and her lover".

The woman, from Muzaffargarh, a city in south Punjab in Pakistan, poisoned a glass of milk intended for her new husband but he did not drink it.

A woman in Pakistan is alleged to have fatally poisoned 15 of her in-laws in a botched effort to kill her husband and escape her arranged marriage.

She said Lashari gave her a poisonous substance, which she used to try to kill her husband. 15 people died in hospital because of the severe intoxication while other 12 remain in a critical condition.

The death toll has been rising since last Thursday, when the tainted drinks were first served and eight people initially died.

Bibi appeared before a judge on Tuesday, where she told reporters she was angry about her parents' decision to marry her to a man against her will.

According to police, she hatched the murder plot as a way to "avenge" being married against her will months earlier, and had previously attempted to flee from her parents' house.

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.

They revealed that the 22-year-old originally denied poisoning the milk and claimed a lizard had fallen into it.
