Karachi an eighteen-year-old girl was shot dead after she allegedly refused a cousin’s marriage proposal, on Friday, in her residence situated within the SITE police limits. Fareeda, daughter of Ali Akber, was reported to have been gunned down by two of her cousins, Ghafoor and his younger brother Ghaffar, inside her Ayub Goth residence.
