HYDERABAD: In what seems to be another honour killing case, a mother of three and her alleged paramour were shot dead in Sindh’s Nawabshah, Shaheed Benazirabad District on Saturday.

Police said the murderer, Ghulam Muhammad Rajput, was a brother-in-law of the woman, 25-year-old Parveen Rajput. The man killed along with her was identified as 28-year-old Muhammad Ali Jamali.

“The killer has surrendered himself to the police along with the weapon he had used and also confessed to his crime,”  Bandhi SHO Ghulam Sarwar told The Express Tribune.

Rajput told the police that he had found Parveen and Jamali in an objectionable condition and he murdered them in a fit of rage.

A case has not been lodged so far as the police are waiting for the victims’ families to approach them. “The police can also lodge an FIR on the State’s complaint,” the SHO maintained.

On Thursday, a man was shot dead, apparently in a case of honour killing, in Dera Murad Jamali district of Balochistan.
