Karachi: The bodies of a man and a woman with their throats slit were found in a house in Bilawal Jokhia Goth near check-post No 6 of Malir Cantonment early on Monday morning.
The Malir Cantt police said that the victims were identified as Majid Ali, 30, and Kaneez Sakina, who were apparently killed over honour.
A police official said: “Ali, who worked as a cameraman for a private television channel, was in love with Sakina and wanted to marry her.”
Ali was invited over by Sakina’s father to talk about getting them married, but the father probably killed them with a sharp weapon, added the police official.
He said Sakina’s father Ayaz Hussain Shah was a constable in the Larkana police and initial investigations suggested that Ayaz Shah and his brother Amir Ali Shah had killed the Ali and Sakina.
On the complaint of Majid Ali’s brother Nazakat Ali, FIR No 111/2013 under Section 302 has been registered by the Malir Cantt police.
