Karachi: Four girls, aged between two and 10,were allegedly drowned by their mother who later attempted to commit suicide on Thursday in Pakistan's southwestern province of Balochistan.
Police officials said they were investigating the matter after the bodies of the four minor girls were found in a water tank in the Samungli area of Quetta, the provincial capital.
"Initially, their father Muhammad Khan said that his wife was mentally ill and had poisoned the minor girls," a police official said.
"But doctors at the hospital where the bodies were taken said they have been killed by drowning," he said.
The bodies of the girls - identified as Zakia, Farzana, Parwana, Yasmeen - were shifted to Quetta Civil Hospital for autopsy, where the mother was also admitted in an unconscious state....
