Karachi: Woman, lover killed for ‘honour’
KARACHI: A woman and her alleged lover were gunned down by her father and brothers on Thursday, police said. According to police, 25-year-old Rahmat Bibi had come to meet Shabaz Khan, 30, at his residence in Sector-3 of Sultanabad, when her father and brothers barged into the house and sprayed both of them with bullets before escaping. They had followed the woman to the man’s house.
After being called to the scene by neighbours who heard the gunshots, Manghopir police took the bodies to the Abbasi Shaheed Hospital for postmortems.
Both the victims hailed from Swat and were residents of the same area. In a separate incident, the bullet-riddled body of a 35-year-old man was found near Ali Akbar Goth. The corpse was carried to the Jinnah Postgraduate Medical Centre after a passer-by spotted it and informed the Ibrahim Hyderi police.
Police said that unidentified people had carried the body in a car and dumped it in the area. The identity of the victim remains unknown.
