An American consulate security guard, his wife and his son were killed when unidentified assailants barged into their house Friday night and opened fire.
Fazale Rabani was killed on the spot when the gunman entered his house in the suburban village of Sabi, Budhni. His wife Khudija and son Nabi Amin were also killed in the attack while Rabani’s other son Ismail and relative Salaha were seriously injured. They were taken to the hospital in critical condition.
Police said that the victims had ‘no enmity with anyone in the family or neighbourhood’ and that they lived in a ‘modest house measuring only five marlas’. Police also added that nothing had been stolen from the house.
The unidentified gunmen managed to escape before the police arrived. An FIR was registered against them.
Police said that they did not want to jump to conclusions about the motive of the murders.
