The District police chief Sohail Habib Tajak said that Bibi was married to her cousin against her own will in September in a village near the remote town of Ali Pur in Pakistan. But that’s what her religion says.
In a court appearance on Tuesday, Bibi told reporters that she did not agree with her parents so she was furious over her parents’ decision to marry her to a man she did not wish to wed, instead of a man of her choice.
“I repeatedly asked my parents not to marry me against my will as my religion, Islam, also allows me to choose the man of my choice for marriage but my parents rejected all of my pleas and they married me to a relative”.
Bibi said she had warned her parents that she would go to any extreme lengths to stop her marriage, if they don’t,dissolve it, but her plea fell on deaf ears hence they still refused to allow her to get a divorce and return home.
Bibi who had a boyfriend, Shahid Lashari, who she continued secretly dating after she was married, provided Bibi with the poisonous substance, which she mixed into milk and tried to serve to her already wedded husband.
Her husband, gracefully refused to drink the milk, but his mom whom later saw the tainted drink and used it to make lassi, a traditional yogurt-based drink, which she then served to 27 family members.
Unfortunately, all 27 of the family members who consumed the beverage fell ill and hospitalized. Seventeen of them died while the other ten are still receiving medical attention.
Both Bibi and her lover who provided the poison have been arrested and now face charges over the incident.
