Woman Serves Husband "Poisoned" Yoghurt... Kills 13 Family Members

What kind of thing is this? A woman who gave her husband poisoned milk ended up killing him and 12 other members of his family when the tainted liquid was turned into a yoghurt drink and served to him and his relatives, police investigations revealed.

The Pakistani woman, who was allegedly forced by her family into an arranged marriage in September, has been arrested and charged with murder along with her alleged lover, senior police official Owais Ahmad told reporters in central Pakistan’s Muzaffargarh district on Monday.

Police said Asiya Bibi mixed poison into her husband’s milk last week but he initially failed to drink it and it was instead blended into a batch of yoghurt-based lassi and served to the man’s family.

13 people have so far died, including the husband, while a further 14 have been hospitalised, he said.

“Police have arrested Asiya Bibi, a man and his aunt for being accomplices and charged them with murder,” Ahmad said.

He said the man was allegedly Bibi’s lover and that his aunt helped hatch the murder plot.
