Man booked for killing in-laws in Korangi
KARACHI: A couple was murdered inside their Korangi home allegedly by their son-in-law on Wednesday, police said. They said suspect Sajid Sumar`s wife had left him after one year of their marriage and he had a dispute over this matter with his in-laws.
“Sajid`s wife left her husband`s home some two-three months ago that triggered a dispute between the two sides,” said Inspector Abid Tanoli, the SHO of the Korangi Industrial Area police station.
“However, her parents told Sajid that she had never returned to their home and they had no knowledge about her whereabouts. However, Sajid had doubts that her in-laws had sent his wife to their ancestral village in southern Punjab.”Sajid came to his in-laws house in Mehran Goth in Sector-H Korangi on Wednesday morning. He and his in-laws exchanged words with each other and Sajid pulled out a TT pistol, fired multiple shots that hit 52-year-old Mushtaq Hussain and 47-year-old Saeeda Begum and escaped, the area SHO added.
“The wounded were shifted to the Jinnah Postgraduate Medical Centre, where they died during the treatment. We have found five spent bullet casings from the crime-scene that suggested that a TT pistol was used,” he said.
The police registered a case (FIR 566/2011) under Section 302 (premeditated murder) of the Pakistan Penal Code against Sajid on the complaint of the victims` son.
