Cop kills brother

A constable of Islamabad police shot dead his brother after the two fought over some domestic issue in their house in Madina Town.

Police said Constable Zeeshan, deputed at Lohi Bher police station, opened fire from his pistol on his brother Arslan. The incident took place around 8:40am on Friday in Madina Town in Khanna police jurisdiction.

The family took the body to hospital on their own and initially tried to hide the episode from the police.

However, when the homicide investigation team went to the crime scene they suspected family’s version and when interrogated them, they told them that the two brothers had fought over some issue and one was killed.

“The bullet from Zeeshan’s pistol hit Arsalan in the lungs and went out from back,” a police investigator said.
