In an apparent case of honour killing, a man killed his teenage sister Zubaida in Dildar Ghari, Charsadda on Saturday over suspicions that she was in a relationship. The victim’s stepsister Musarat was also injured in the firing.
Musarat told the police at the hospital’s casualty ward that she was at home with Zubaida when her stepbrother Haider Ali came in and shot Zubaida, Tarnab police official Roohul Ameen told The Express Tribune.
Zubaida died instantly, and an injured Musarat was taken to hospital. Ali fled.
According to Musarat, Ali shot Zubaida because he suspected she was seeing a man from Shabqadar. Tarnab police has registered a case.
