A teenage girl was killed and another was injured in an armed attack in Habibullah Gabole village, near Mirpur Mathelo, late on Wednesday night.
Relatives and neighbours had gathered at the house of Rehmatullah Gabole for the circumcision ceremony of his nephew, Khuda Bux. While the women sang songs late at night some men scaled the wall and opened fire on them. Nusrat, 17, the daughter of Rehmatullah Gabole, died on the spot while Zamiran, 16, the daughter of Gulsher Gabole was injured.
Both were taken to Mirpur Mathelo Hospital but no case was registered this report was filed. The neighbours said that the reason for the murder was a matrimonial dispute between two groups of the Gabole clan. One person had already died because of it, and the men killed the girls in revenge.
