LAHORE: The widow and mother-in-law of one of Raymond Davis’ victims were allegedly killed by his father-in-law after a domestic dispute in the Johar Town area of Lahore on Monday, The Express Tribune learnt.
Faizan Haider and Faheem Shamshad were allegedly shot dead by American official Raymond Davis in a market area of Lahore on January 26, 2011.
Zahra, widow of Faizan Haider and her mother Nabeela were allegedly shot dead by Zahra’s father at their home in 52-B-1, Johar Lahore. The killer, who was identified as Shehzad Butt, fled the scene after the incident. The two were killed by Butt after a domestic dispute had erupted. Family sources claimed that Butt opposed Zahra marrying anyone other than Faizan’s brother, while the mother and daughter were against it.
Sanaullah, a security guard at a nearby school said that he heard firing at around 12:15pm and he saw Zahra’s body outside the property, while Nabeela was lying on the porch of the house. Johar Town and Town Ship Police reached the spot immediately after the killings and the bodies were shifted to a postmortem house for autopsy. They revealed that Nabeela was shot inside the house, while Zahra was shot in the street as she tried to flee.
Neighbours, on condition of anonymity said that they often heard screaming from the residence. Shehzad wanted her to marry Faizan’s brother, but she and Nabeela opposed this. A month ago Zahra secretly married another man, and when her father found out about it, he became furious which resulted in him killing his daughter and wife.
