Man kills two in-laws, injures estranged wife

GUJRAT: A man allegedly shot dead two members of his in-laws’ family and injured his estranged wife, who had filed a civil suit seeking divorce from him, in Darbari Mohallah in the limits of Lalamusa Sadar police, on Monday.

Police say the suspect, Akhtar Ali, of Kamla Bhand village, was married to Ghazala Bibi of Darbari Mohallah a few years ago. However, the couple developed differences over some domestic issues and the woman filed a civil suit in a local court at Kharian, seeking divorce.

On Monday, the suspect, along with his two unidentified armed accomplices, barged into the house of his in-laws and opened indiscriminate fire, resulting in instant death of his brother-in-law Ali Raza.

Akhtar’s father-in-law Muhammad Fazil and wife Ghazala Bibi were injured in the firing. The suspect and his accomplices fled away after firing.

The injured were shifted to the Aziz Bhatti Shaheed Teaching Hospital (ABSTH), where Fazil also succumbed to his bullet injuries, while Ghazala was being treated for her wounds.

On being informed of the incident, police and forensic experts reached the scene and collected the evidence.

The police have registered a case against the prime suspect, his mother, a sister and his two unidentified accomplices, under sections 302, 324, 109 and 34 of the Pakistan Penal Code on the complaint of Banaras Ali, a brother of Ghazala Bibi and started investigation.
