Chakwal: Family dispute claims 2 lives
CHAKWAL: A man killed his mother–in–law, brother–in–law and injured his wife on Friday over a family dispute. The sources said that Rabia Bibi, the resident of Abuzar Colony was married to Israr Ahmad a few years ago. As the differences between the couple cropped up, Rabia Bibi left her husband and started living with her mother. She demanded divorce from her husband but he refused. At this, she filed a petition in the court in this regard. On Thursday, the court gave the verdict in her favour. Getting enraged at the verdict, Israr Ahmad stormed the house of his mother-in-law and opened indiscriminate fire at his wife and other relatives.
As he ran short of the bullets, he attacked them with a knife killing his mother–in–law Sardar Begum and brother-in-law Qaisar Khalil on the spot while his estranged wife sustained serious injuries. She was rushed to the DHQ hospital where she is under intensive care.
