When she didn’t give him the tea on time he got angry and axed her to death in the presence of his minor children, they said.

On the complaint of the woman’s father, the local police registered a case.

The accused himself surrendered to the police and said he had committed the crime in a fit of anger, police said.

Meanwhile, the Pakistan Hindu Council condemned the incident.

The chief patron of the council, Ramesh Kumar said the news of the incident was disturbing for the Hindu community as the deceased was the mother of two minor girls.

“We are gathering more information as the incident took place in a remote area of Tando Bhag. We plan to educate our community about discouraging such acts,” he said.

Sindh has the largest population of the nearly 300 million Hindus in Pakistan specially in the remote areas of the province.
