HYDERABAD: In yet another grisly incident bearing the hallmarks of an honour killing, a man allegedly killed his wife and sister in a village in Sanghar district on Monday. According to Tando Adam taluka DSP Muhammad Ayub Brohi, two young women were allegedly shot dead in Mir Muhammad Khyber village by the suspect, Abdul Rehman Khyber, who escaped after the incident.

The bodies of the slain women were shifted to the Shahdadpur Institute of Medical Sciences Hospital for postmortem formalities. The DSP said that the incident took place in the limits of the taluka police station and the FIR has not been lodged so far.

In another taluka of Sanghar district, the body of 25-year-old Khadim Hussain Sanjrani was found lying in an agricultural field in Khairo Khan Sanjrani village. The police said that Sanjrani's throat was slit with a sharp object.

In Sindh, one woman killed every day in the name of honour

Mubarak Ali Sanjrani, the victim’s brother, informed the police that Khadim left home on Sunday night around 8pm but did not return. He claimed that neither their family nor his slain brother have any known enemies. "We own only two acres of land which we cultivate for a living," he said. The family also held a protest along with the body, demanding the killer’s arrest. The murder FIR could not be lodged due to a delay in the postmortem.
