Attock: Brother kills newly-wed sister
ATTOCK: A man from Swabi district of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) killed his newly-wed sister in the name of honour near the Faqirabad village in Attock, following her marriage to a relative without the family’s consent. Sources claim that the deceased Z.B.’s family disapproved of her decision and believed that it would bring them disgrace and embarrassment. Z.B. was heading to Swabi from Rawalpindi on Wednesday with her brother-in-law when they were allegedly intercepted by her brother Z.K. and two other armed men on G.T. Road near Faqirabad. Sources say she was dragged out of the vehicle at gunpoint and shot on the spot. Her brother then escaped.
The local police rushed to the scene and shifted the woman’s body to district headquarters hospital. A murder case has been registered by Attock Saddar police station against the accused on the report of the deceased’s brother-in-law.
