MULTAN / GUJRAT: Three women were shot on Sunday in two incidents. Two of them died and one was hospitalised in critical condition. In Multan, a woman and her daughter were shot allegedly by a man who had wanted to marry the girl.
The woman died on the spot. The girl was taken to Nishtar Hospital in a critical condition. Police said the suspect, Muddassir, had sent a proposal for his cousin, Kanwal, which her mother Naureen Bibi, a resident of Al Mustafa Town, had turned down because she had wanted her daughter to marry another cousin who lives in Faisalabad. On Sunday, Muddassir and two other men broke into their house and shot the mother and daughter.
Naureen Bibi died on the spot, while Kanwal was taken to the hospital, where doctors treating her said that she was in critical condition. Bahauddin Zakariya police have registered a case on the complaint of Mehboob, the husband of the deceased. No arrests have been made so far.
In Gujrat, a man shot his mother dead. Police said Pathan Aleem, a resident of Doara village, had had an argument with his mother before shot her in the head and fled. His brother filed a case against him with the Kurianwala police.
