A man allegedly gunned down his paternal aunt in Sarwar Shaheed area on Friday to avenge the family for taking away his underage wife through court.
Police said the suspect identified as Samiullah, a resident of Adda Wahindra, had allegedly tied a knot with his paternal cousin Misbah after kidnapping her.
The girl’s father Liaquat Ali went to the court and submitted documents to prove that the girl was underage thus the marriage was invalid.
The court accepted the proof and allowed the girl to go with her father. Enraged, Samiullah went over to his uncle’s house in his absence and murdered Hassina Bibi.
