DI KHAN:


A man reportedly killed his daughter and her alleged boyfriend after he found them in a room inside his house in Kathar Yanwalla Mohala on Saturday.


A city police official said the father came to the police station following the incident and confessed to his crime. Abdur Rauf Khattak told the city police he woke up to go to the washroom during the night when he saw a light switched on in one of the rooms. When he entered the room, he saw his 15-year-old daughter, Sabina, sitting with an unidentified boy. Seeing this, Khattak got furious and killed them both.

Khattak said he suffocated the boy to death using a pillow and strangled his daughter using a rope. The boy was later identified as Asad Abbas, 20, a resident of Gass Mandi Mohala.

Khattak is currently being held in a lock-up at the city police station and a murder case has been registered against him.
