Enraged, he returned home and thrashed his wife the moment she stepped inside the house. Later, he went to Shafique’s residence to kill him, but he was not at home.
So, Abdul attacked three of his family members with a chopper. The injured were identified as Farzana, Suneri and Aslam. Abdul attacked the first two, both women, brutally. While Suneri lost a few of her fingers, Farzana was grievously injured and is battling for life at the Bhabha Hospital.

Officers said Abdul told them he had no remorse and felt he had done the right thing by assaulting Shafique’s family. They said that despite the gravity of his crime, he appeared calm.
