HAFIZABAD - A woman was axed to death by her son ‘apparently’ over suspicion of illicit relations here in Maghoke village on Monday.

The police have registered a case against Zaigham for killing his mother.  According to police source, Zubaida Bibi developed illicit relations with a young man and his friends often taunted Zaigham about the immorality of his mother. The son advised his mother to mend her ways time and again but she lent deaf ear to his son’s complaints. Thereupon he had harsh words with his mother and then allegedly attacked her with an axe, killing her on the spot.
