SUKKUR: A woman was allegedly gunned down by her step-brother on the pretext of karo-kari in Loung Gopang village, Khairpur district.
The accused, Ghulam Hussain Gopang, suspected that his sister, Mai Jarul, was having illicit relations with another man. On Thursday, he barged into her house, opened fire at her and fled. The body was shifted to a taluka hospital in Kot Diji.
Kot Diji SHO Ali Asghar Almani said that the police have recovered the gun used in the murder but the accused is still on the run. A Kot Diji-based journalist said that the deceased had seven children; two from her first husband and five from the second. He added that Ghulam was Mai’s step-brother.
