Upset with her husband, a woman allegedly killed her two children and buried them in the courtyard of her home in Multan district of Pakistan's Punjab province, police said on Wednesday.
Asia Bibi, 28, a resident of Shujabad in Multan district, 350 km from Lahore, was reportedly upset due to her strained relations with her husband Muhammad Bilal, who was not supporting the family.
On Monday, Asia strangled her children, six-year-old Waqas and four-year-old Jalil and buried their bodies in the courtyard of her home.
A visiting relative became suspicious when Asia could not give a satisfactory reply about the absence of her children from the home.
Acting on the relative's compliant, police took Asia into custody and recovered the bodies and buried them in the local graveyard.
Police officials said Asia was living with her children as her husband was working in Karachi.
Asia told police she had killed her children in a fit of anger and that she regretted her action.
She said her husband wanted to divorce her so that he could remarry and that she said she had no money to feed her children as Bilal had not given her any money for many months.
She said she had not been able to sleep since she killed her children.
"I do not want to live anymore," she said.
Muhammad Hasan, a relative of Bilal, alleged that Asia was involved in a relationship with another man and had wanted to elope with him.
