LAKKI MARWAT: A man killed his wife and three other relatives with the help of accomplices in Ayyaz Wala village overnight, Lakki police said on Sunday.
Anwar, a resident of Dallokhel village, had gone to his in-laws house in Ayyaz Wala to bring back his estranged wife, Farah Naz.
Her refusal infuriated Anwar who, along with two people accompanying him, allegedly opened fire on her and other inmates of the house.
Farah Naz, her brother Irfanullah and aunt Kaneeza Bibi died instantly while her mother Nawab Bibi sustained critical wounds and died on way to Lakki city hospital.
Javed Khan, a relative of the deceased, told police in the FIR that he was watering fields near the house of his uncle, Rehmatullah, when he heard shots and rushed to the uncle`s house. Mr Khan told police the main gate of the house was bolted from inside and her aunt Nawab Bibi was crying for help.
“I entered the house by scaling the wall and found Farah Naz, Kaneeza Bibi and Irfanullah dead while the wounded Nawab Bibi was lying on the ground,” he said.
According to him the injured Nawab Bibi told him that Anwar came with two accomplices, armed with Kalashnikov rifles, and tried to take away Farah Naz without her consent.
“On her refusal, he and his accomplices sprayed us with bullets, killing Farah Naz, Kaneeza Bibi and Irfanullah instantly,” the complainant Javed quoted Nawab Bibi as saying.
Police arrested the main accused Anwar and started investigation after registering a case in Lakki Marwat police station.
