SHEIKHUPURA: A man in Sheikhupura district forced his wife to drink acid after she gave birth to a babygirl, reported a private TV channel on Sunday.
According to reports , family members of the man assisted him in the heinous act against his wife. God blessed Nawazish, a resident of Jandyala Road, with a daughter but he got so upset over the birth of a daughter that he decided to punish his wife.
