A man was arrested in Shikarpur on Tuesday for allegedly attempting to kill his two sons as they refused to let him contract a second marriage.
According to the police, Habibur Rahman from Ratodero tehsil tied the hands and legs of his young sons and threw them in Janat Shaakh canal.
The police added that the locals heard the children’s cries and alerted them. They then arrested the accused when he was trying to flee from the location.
Habib, reportedly, killed his first wife in the name of honour eight years ago. The police have registered a case and started investigation.
