The grade 17 federal government employee, Mujahid Ali, confessed to strangulating his wife and 18-month old daughter during the investigation

A senior police official told The Express Tribune that Mujahid Ali probably killed his wife and daughter so that he could marry another woman

The suspect confessed that he killed his wife and continued sleeping beside the dead body with her daughter for two-three days
