TOBA TEK SINGH, May 28: The parents and in-laws of a woman joined hands to bump her and her lover off, with both families assigning the task to their one member each. The two finished the job ‘immaculately’ at a deserted place between Chaks 395-JB and 292-JB, some 10kms from here, on Wednesday.
A married woman, ‘S’ had eloped with her lover, Khan Bahadur, both residents of Chak 400-JB, a few days back. Collaborating with each other for the sake of ‘honour’, the eloped woman’s parents and her in-laws found the whereabouts of the fugitives and deputed Riaz, husband of woman, and her brother Abdul Zaman to kill both the lovebirds.
The two armed men kidnapped the couple from their hideout in a nearby village. They later took both lovers on a car to a link road of Sada Arayan village and killed them with gunshot fires at a deserted place near the rural water supply scheme.
Receiving information, the police reached the spot and recovered Rs3,400 in cash and ornaments from the purse of the deceased woman.
A source said both families approached local parliamentarians to pile pressure on the Saddar police not to register a case. However, on DPO’s order, the case had been registered on the complaint of Sabir Sultan, the son of deceased Khan Bahadur.
The deceased woman has four daughters, three of them married, and a son while her lover has three sons. It is learnt that one of the daughters of the deceased woman is the daughter-in-law of Khan Bahadur.
