A newly-wed woman, who allegedly poisoned milk in a bid to kill her husband, caused the death of 13 of her in-laws in Punjab province in Pakistan after they drank the milk when it mixed in "lassi", it was reported on Monday.

Bibi was forced to marry a man chosen by her family in September but she already had a boyfriend, identified only as Shahid. According to UPI, the alleged lover is a cousin whom Bibi had hoped to marry.

Seventeen people died and 10 are still being treated in hospital, he said.

A Pakistani bride is making worldwide headlines after being charged with the poisoning of her husband and his family.

North Star Investment Management Corp. raised its position in shares of Tesla by 2.8% in the 2nd quarter. The stock's 50-day moving average price is $350.92 and its 200-day moving average price is $341.49.

The milk was turned into a batch of lassi, a yoghurt drink, and served to his extended family. 17 died and 10 were receiving medical attention.

According to police, she hatched the murder plot as a way to "avenge" being married against her will months earlier, and had previously attempted to flee from her parents' house. With this attempt failed, she then made a decision to poison her husband.

District Police Officer Muzaffargarh Awais Ahmad Malik said the kind of poison used would only be clear after chemical tests on the victims. A judge has also given police two weeks to decide if the plot was the 22-year-old's own decision or if her lover had encouraged her.

Initially, it was claimed that a lizard had fallen into the milk, poisoning it. They say Shahid has confessed to supplying a poisonous substance. The 22-year-old also added that she meant to only harm her husband and not the extended family.
