London: An Asian businesswoman of Pakistani-origin was allegedly stabbed to death by her son, who suspected her of having an extra-marital affair.

40-year-old Assia Shahzad, who was into property development and taxi business, was found dead by police at her home in Aylesbury, Bucks, on Saturday evening.

Police said her hands were severed during the brutal attack and she was badly beaten.

The victim's 21-year-old son, Usman, along with a 16-year-old boy have been arrested on suspicion of murder, The Daily Telegraph reported.

Shahzad's husband Rashad had left the home six months ago and gone back to Pakistan after he suspected that his wife had been having an affair with another man, the report said quoting the victim's neighbours.
