Woman shot dead in Orangi
Karachi: A labourer allegedly shot dead his wife and wounded himself in what appeared to be an attempt to commit suicide in their house in Orangi Town`s Sector 10 on Tuesday, police said.
“The couple, 36-year-old Muhammad Khalid and 25-year-old Naseeb Bibi, was living in Fareed Colony for the last three years,” said an official at the Mominabad police station. “Khalid, who worked as an industrial labourer in SITE, returned home late Monday night and according to neighbours, they heard shouting from both sides before firing.”
After hearing firing, some area people rushed to the couple`s house and found the woman`s body lying in a pool of blood. “A badly wounded Khalid was also lying along with a piston in his hand,” said the official.
“They were shifted to the Abbasi Shaheed Hospital, where the man is still under unconscious. We are also waiting for the victims` families, who lived in Kala Dhaka in Khyber Pakhtunkhawa to find any clue behind the incident. We just know that the couple had tied the knot some four years ago and had no child,” he added.
