LAHORE: A youth slaughtered his mother on suspicion of illicit relations at Shaheen Colony in the Factory Area police precincts on Monday. The deceased was identified as 45-year-old Zarqa Sana. According to Mirza Atif, another son of the victim, his elder but step brother Dilawar started exchanging harsh words with their mother over a family matter. During the process, the accused shot at and injured the victim. Later, he slaughtered her with a sharp–edged weapon.
Rescue 1122 officials, after being informed, reached the scene and rushed the victim to the General Hospital where doctors pronounced her dead. Meanwhile, police officials reached the scene and removed the body to morgue.
Police sources, however, claimed that the killer was suspicious that his mother had developed illicit relations with a local of the area. They alleged that Zarqa was going to meet her paramour on Monday and Dilawar stopped her but she turned a deaf ear to his words. Factory Area Circle ASP Sarfaraz Virak said they had arrested the killer, who confessed to committing the crime in police custody, alleging that his mother had a bad character.
