Taxila: Man shot dead over illicit relations
TAXILA: A man was shot dead in Farooq-i-Azam locality on Wednesday over illicit relations with a girl. Police said Rabia Bibi, a resident of Haripur, was in love with Faisal Riaz, 25, and wanted to marry him. Some days back, she fled her home for a court marriage. But the family members of Faisal Riaz convinced her to return to her home and she should send a marriage proposal through her parents.
Rabia Bibi’s brother Adil Ahmed got infuriated at what his sister had done. In a well-conceived plan, he went to the house of Faisal Riaz and invited him to his home to finalise the marriage.
As soon as Faisal Riaz stepped out of his home, Adil Ahmed and three persons opened fire on him, killing him on the spot, Mohammad Riaz, father of Faisal, told the police. The alleged killers managed to escape.
