Islamabad, Feb 4: Shahajahan built Taj Mahal for his loved wife Mumtaz but here is a man who kept his loved wife's dead body for 14 months.
A man from Bahawalpur has been arrested by the Punjab police after it was discovered that he did not bury his dead wife for 14 months 'out of love'.
According to a private TV channel report on Feb 3, Mushtaq Masih told the police that his wife, Naziran Bibi, had been killed by unidentified men when she was alone at home and had not buried her as he loved her a lot.
"I just thought that she was sleeping and would wake up some day," the Daily Times quoted him as saying.
His attempt to keep the body was only discovered after his landlord visited his house to ask him to vacate the premises, and the police, who suspect his involvement in the killing, have now detained him.
