Buffalo, Feb 17: Muzzamil Hassan, a Pakistani American and the founder, CEO of Bridges TV based in New York was arrested by the police for beheading his wife. The incident took place on Feb 12. Police arrested him with charges of second-degree murder.
Reports suggest that Aasiya Hassan had recently filed a divorce case and had sought an order of protection, which barred Muzzamil from entering their home in Orchard Park in Buffalo's suburb. Hassan who has two children with Aasiya, launched the Bridge TV to counter the negative portrayal of the Muslims.
Aasiya's body was found at the Bridges TV offices in the village of Orchard Park. Her lawyer claims that earlier also there were incidents of physical abuse.
Reports claim the incident to be a honour killing.
