SUKKUR: A man and woman may have been killed on the pretext of karo kari in Shikarpur. The police are still looking for the body of the woman who was identified as Sabhai.
They claim that her husband, Roshan Ali Jatoi, killed her and Shaman Jatoi. The couple and Shaman were residents of Ali Murad Jatoi village in the limits of Rustam police station. According to sources, Sabhai was gunned down by Roshan while she was cooking dinner. Later, Roshan allegedly kidnapped and killed Shaman but that is yet to be confirmed. “Roshan and his accomplices have kidnapped my father and I am afraid they might have killed him,” said Shaman’s son, Shahmir Jatoi.
On the other hand, some sources claimed that Shaman might have gone into hiding after hearing about Sabhai’s murder and the claims made by his son might be false. While talking to The Express Tribune, the Rustam police head constable, Ali Sher, said that he had heard of a woman being killed on the pretext of karo kari but no FIR was registered.
