Pakistan bride in an attempt to kill husband mistakenly kill 13 family members.

A Pakistani woman Asiya in an attempt to kill her husband who was forced on her against her wish two months ago mistakenly killed 13 family members.

The  poisoned  glass of milk which the husband refused was later used by the mother in-law  to make lassi the following day.

She had earlier attempted to flee to her parent’s home but it was foiled. However, the lover provided her with the poison the police said.

A total of 27 people, including several children, suffered poisoning from the yoghurt-based drink.



Initially, it was claimed that a lizard had fallen into the milk, poisoning it. But according to police, Asiya confessed her role while in custody.

Pakistan has made some effort to strengthen the law to prevent forced marriage but there is little or no remedy for a bride who rejects a spouse chosen by the family.

Pakistan has the highest number of forced marriage and cases of poisoning is common in Punja, where last month a newly-married couple were poisoned for unknown reasons by the family of the bride.
