Father kills daughter, man for ‘honour’ RAWALPINDI: A girl and the man she was allegedly seeing were killed by her father in the name of ‘honour’ in New Afzal Town, in the limits of Airport police on Sunday, police said.
The 17-year-old girl’s father first gunned down the 24-year-old construction worker when he was passing through her street, and then his daughter.
The accused, who is a labourer and had been living in a rented house for six years, suspected that the construction worker, who had married another woman just four months ago, was visiting his house to see his daughter. The police said the suspect had tried to persuade the victim to stop seeing his daughter.
According to SI Zulfiqar Ali, the suspect’s wife had told the police that her husband had killed their daughter.
The brother of the slain construction worker also lodged a case against the suspect and two of his sons, saying that his brother had left his house on a motorcycle Sunday morning and that the suspect and his sons had followed him in a taxi.
He said his brother was passing by the suspect’s house when the suspect and two of his sons came out with pistols and shot the victim before going inside to kill his daughter.
