According to Bafa police, Wahab and Ibrahim, residents of Kohistan, allegedly found their 23-year-old niece Qudratun Nisa, wife of Firdous, in an “objectionable state” with their relative Naqash on Wednesday evening when her husband was not at home. The two uncles then opened fire at both of them and escaped.
