LARKANA: A man who earlier claimed that his mother and sister had been killed by his opponents confessed on Wednesday to have killed them himself, the B-Section police said.
The bodies of Naimat Khatoon, 40, and Gulzaran, 25, were found dumped near Seelra village on the outskirts of Shahdadkot on Tuesday and police had arrested the man, Nusrat Ali Chandio, on suspicion of the double murder. The bodies were handed over to his brother.
During his 24-hour detention and interrogation, Chandio told investigators that he killed them for honour, said B-Section SHO Jan Mohammed Samtio.
He said no relatives of the victims turned up to lodge an FIR and, therefore, he registered a case against Chandio on behalf of the state.
He said the suspect told the investigators that he committed the crime with the help of four other persons.
