Vehari: Bride shot dead by `guest`
VEHARI, Feb 20: The stage set for a bride`s wedding proved her deathbed when one of the `guests` opened fire on her at Mailsi tehsil`s Mauza Wahin locality on Sunday.
Reports said Zubaida Bashir, 18, was brought to the stage for her marriage with her cousin, Muhammad Tariq, when a woman shot her. The assailant escaped immediately thereafter.
The Saddar police launched investigation and suspected that Zubaida`s another cousin Mumtaz, who wanted to marry her, might be involved in the crime. A source said the girl`s family had turned down Mumtaz`s proposal to Zubaida to marry him.
The body was sent to the Tehsil Headquarters Hospital for autopsy.
