Back in June 2020, a mother of seven children committed suicide by consuming poisonous pills along with her two daughters over a domestic dispute in Mohalla Selwan, Kundian in Mianwali.
A sense of shock and mourning spread in the neighbourhood after the incident.
Muhammad Tahir Qureshi, son of Allah Din, a resident of Mohalla Selwan, and his wife had a dispute over marriage proposals for their daughters.
The husband allegedly pressured his daughters to accept the marriage proposals as per his wishes, while the wife and daughters did not agree to the proposals.
As a result of the dispute, Tahir’s wife and daughters, 12-year-old Anza and 11-year-old Asma, swallowed a poisonous substance.
