CHARSADDA: A special branch police official was killed in a road accident in Charsadda hours before his wife was gunned down by his brother in a family dispute on Monday.
Tauheed Khan, an official of the city police, said Muhammad Sher, a resident of Bahadur Kallay was on his way to work when three men on a motorbike collided with Sher’s motorcycle and killed him on the spot.
The three motorcyclists, identified as Khaya Khan, Jandol Khan and Jandol’s son Tauseef, were also severely injured and taken to District Headquarters Hospital. Tauseef and Khaya are in critical condition, Tauheed said.
After receiving the news of his accident, Sher’s brother Gauhar Ali picked up a pistol and went to his brother’s house where he shot Sher’s widow Musarrat, injuring her critically.
Musarrat told Serdheri police official Saeed Khan that due to a family dispute she and her husband were living separately. She told the police that her brother-in-law had threatened to kill her that day.
Musarrat later died at the hospital and the couple was buried in Sardheri graveyard.
The police have filed separate cases for investigation.
