FAISALABAD: A man allegedly opened fire, injuring his wife and brother-in-law over a dispute in Faisalabad on Friday.
A police official told Express News that Sehrish, a resident of Chak No 189-RB, had married Haider Ali hailing form Sahiwal.
He added a few days ago, the couple had a heated debate over a family matter. When the arguments escalated, Sehrish got depressed and went to her parents’ home, he maintained.
The official mentioned that on the day of the incident, Haider went to his in-laws house along with his accomplices Shaukat, Ali and others. He pointed out that the accused tried to persuade his wife to come along with him but the woman refused.

Meanwhile, the police have registered a case and started investigations.
