Man shoots wife, son dead over domestic quarrel

OKARA: A man shot his wife and son dead and left two passers-by injured following a domestic quarrel at Dograi village in the district on Friday night.

As per the first information report (FIR), the suspect, Mansha, a resident of Dograi village, had married Sheman Bibi some 28 years ago and the couple had eight children.

However, around seven years back, he contracted second marriage with Rashidan Bibi and brought her home. His both wives started living under the same roof.

As Mansha’s first wife was not happy with her husband’s second marriage, the two wives would have frequent quarrels, the police said quoting the suspect’s neighbours.

On Friday night, Mansha, along with his two unidentified armed accomplices arrived at his house. He shot at his first wife, Sheman, who tried to escape but the suspect chased and shot her dead on the spot.

When Mansha’s son Shahzad attempted to save his mother, the suspect also shot him. Shahzad too succumbed to his bullet injury on the spot.

Meanwhile, two passers-by, identified as Ali Husnain and Mukhtar Ahmad, also received bullets fired by Mansha and were referred shifted to a hospital in Mandi Ahmedabad, from where they were referred to a hospital in Lahore.

On the report of Mansha’s son Afzaal, Mandi Ahmadabad police registered a double-murder case against Mansha and his two unidentified accomplices under sections 302 and 34 of the Pakistan Penal Code (PPC).
