Giving details about the incident, Senior Superintendent of Police, Budgam, Uttam Chand said, Bilal Ahmad Pandith allegedly killed his wife, 28-year-old Sameera Jan in the evening. “Bilal Ahmad who is also Sameera’s cousin is absconding and a manhunt has been launched to arrest him,” he said, adding a case had been registered in Chadoora Police Station under FIR No. 57/2011 U/S 302 of RPC and three members of her in-laws had been arrests so far.
