Karachi: 3 found dead inside New Karachi house
KARACHI, Jan 13: A young man, his wife and brother-in-law were found dead inside their New Karachi house on Thursday, police said.
The police suspected personal enmity as a motive behind the killing of 40-year-old Aftab alias Khanu, his 34-year-old wife, Qamar, and 27-year-old brother-in-law, Tanveer.
The police officials said that the bodies were found lying in two separate rooms on the ground floor of the house in Sector 5-G of New Karachi.
“A relative of the victims came to see them in the evening, but found them dead. The police were accordingly informed about the bodies,” said SP Karamullah Soomro of the New Karachi town.
He said the bodies were shifted to the Abbasi Shaheed Hospital for medico-legal formalities.
He quoted doctors as saying that Aftab had suffered two gunshot wounds and the other two victims were tortured and then strangled to death.
The bodies appeared to have lain there for four to six hours before they were examined by the doctors, he said.
“We have found two spent bullet casings from the crime-scene indicating that the firing was carried out inside the house,” he said. However, he added, the neighbours declined to have heard gunfire.
