Rawalpindi: 3 die in separate incidents
RAWALPINDI: Three persons, including a woman, were killed in separate incidents in the city during Eid, police said. The victim’s brother alleged that his sister, in her 30s, was shot dead by her husband and her brother-in-law in Dhoke Dalal on Sunday. Preliminary police investigation suggested that the husband was allegedly quarrelling with his wife over a domestic issue, when she telephoned her brother and asked him to come over to her house and settle the dispute. The husband first started shouting at his wife’s brother and later pulled out a pistol and fired at him. However, he remained unhurt but his sister was hit, and died on the spot. Meanwhile, Syed Rashid Hussain Shah, a local businessman, was shot dead by some unidentified gunmen in Sadiqabad on Monday night, police said.
The victim was sitting in his office, when armed men entered and murdered him. Police said that it was yet to be ascertained whether it was a robbery attempt or a motivated murder. The body was shifted to District Headquarters Hospital for postmortem. In another incident, a PIA passenger coach driver, who was injured critically after being run over by a bus at Benazir Bhutto International Airport on Friday morning, later died at Benazir Bhutto Hospital.
Mohammad Waheed, the driver, in his statement to the police before he died, said he was himself at fault as he tried to get on the moving bus and fell down.
The victim was trying to board a bus that was negotiating a turn on the apron when he lost his balance and came under the wheels of the vehicle.
He was shifted to Benazir Bhutto Hospital where he died after struggling for his life in the emergency ward for more than 12 hours.
