Woman 'killed 17 family members in bid to poison husband'

A Pakistani wife "accidentally" killed 17 members of her in-laws after they drank a concoction containing poisoned milk.

Bibi, along with her alleged lover and the aunt, were all arrested and charged with murder, the Times of India reported, and have denied all charges. A man, believed to be the woman's boyfriend, Shahid, and his aunt, Zarina Mai, were also arrested, Geo TV said.

The newly married poured poison into her husband's milk.

At least 27 people got affected while 15 lost their lives after drinking that poisonous lassi. Yet he refused when she offered the milk to him.

Bibi and Lashari appeared before a judge in the city of Muzaffargarh on Tuesday, where she told reporters that she was angered over her parents' decision to marry her to a man against her will. With this attempt failed, she then chose to poison her husband.
