HYDERABAD: A father allegedly shot dead his teenaged daughter and later surrendered himself to the police in Tando Allahyar district on Sunday.
In what is claimed to be a case of honour killing, the suspect, Umeed Mallah, told the police that he killed 18-year-old Sawera Mallah for honour. The incident took place in Talibul Moula Colony.
“He surrendered along with the pistol with which he killed the young girl,” A-Section police station SHO Naek Muhammad Khoso said. According to him, Mallah suspected that his daughter was involved with a man.
The police are yet to register FIR of the incident. According to the SHO, if the family does not become the complainant in the case, then the FIR will likely to be registered on the state’s complaint after the post-mortem report.
In a similar incident in Nawabshah district on Saturday, a 25-year-old woman, Parveen Rajput, and her alleged paramour, Muhammad Ali Jamali, were allegedly shot dead by Rajput’s brother-in-law.
