Man, wife shot dead for ‘honour’ in Ittehad Town

KARACHI: A couple was shot dead in Ittehad Town on Saturday night over so-called ‘honour’, said police.

They added that Ibrahim Jamshed and his wife Shakila were killed by the accused identified as Husain in Jedda Hazara Colony.

Ittehad Town police SHO Inayatullah Marwat said the police had arrested the suspect and recovered a pistol allegedly used in the murder.

The police officer said that the suspect was an elder brother of the male victim.

During the initial probe, it transpired that the suspect killed his sister-in-law because he believed that she used to meet some ‘bad people.’

However, when his own younger brother intervened, he killed him too.

The bodies were taken to the Dr Ruth Pfau Civil Hospital Karachi to fulfill medico-legal formalities.
