Karachi: Woman killed by former husband
KARACHI: A woman was killed by her former husband in Orangi Town on Thursday.
Police said Sidra Kiran, 20, was walking through a ground near an Imambargah within the remit of the Pirabad Police Station when her former husband allegedly shot her. She suffered a single shot in the head and died on way to hospital.
Orangi Town SP Khurram Waris said Ali Hasan was arrested by the police and a 9mm pistol used by him was seized from him.
He said the couple had divorced about five months back. They had a court marriage in Hyderabad and remained married for about one and a half years. The couple has an infant daughter.
After his arrest, the suspect said his former wife had called him there, but her father, Aurangzeb, told the police that a friend of the suspect was also seen near the ground.
Police registered an FIR (782/2010) under Section 302 of the Pakistan Penal Code (PPC) on the complaint of the girl’s father, Aurangzeb, against Ali Hasan at the Pirabad Police Station.
