Lahore: Angry man guns down wife
LAHORE: Annoyed that his wife was not willing to reconcile with him despite his repeated attempts, an angry man gunned down his wife in front of minor daughter here in Chuhng area on early Tuesday, police said.
Eyewitnesses said that the woman was going to drop her daughter at a nearby school when her husband suddenly appeared there and opened fire at her. Resident of Nawab Shahabad Colony, Misbah Bibi, 28, sustained a bullet in the head and died on the spot while the killer identified as Shahbaz Ahmed managed to escape from the scene.
Police investigators said that Misbah and Shahbaz had tied their knot some five years ago. After their marriage, the relations between the couple remain strained owing to financial constraints.
Two months back, both exchanged harsh words over financial issues. Misbah along with her children left her residence and started living with her parents in Nawab Shahabad Colony. The killer repeatedly tried to get reconciled with his wife but to no avail.
