Man kills mother for property in Islamabad
ISLAMABAD: In a horrific incident a man murdered his mother and injured his younger brother in the capital’s outskirts over property dispute, police said.
The incident took place in Dhoke Rajgan in Tarnol when armed with a 12-bore gun Ijaz Khan entered the house of his parents and fired two shots at his mother, Khalida Bibi, 57. Police said Ijaz’s 70-year-old father was present when he opened fire at his mother.
Hearing gunshots, his younger brother Shahzad Khan rushed out to find Khalida on the ground. Police said Ijaz also opened fire on his younger brother and escaped.
The neighbours also rushed to the house and informed the police. The mother and son were shifted to the hospital where Khalida was pronounced dead. Shahzad’s condition, according to doctors, is critical.
Khalida’s body was handed over to the family after the autopsy for burial. Police said the family was living in separate portions of a house. The accused, who owns a spare parts shop, was living with his family in one portion and in the other lived his parents and younger brother.
Quoting neighbours, police said Ijaz had frequent scuffles with his parents and young brother over property. He used to allege that his parents had given “better land” to his brother.
