Dishonour killing in Pakistan: Three shot dead
Islamabad: Two men and a woman have been shot dead in two incidents of "honour killing" in Pakistan, a media report said Sunday.
Zeenat Khan and her father-in-law Wali Mohammad were shot dead by the woman`s brother, Javed Khan, with the help of his uncle when the victims were sleeping in their home in Nowshera, police told Dawn.
Zeenat had married Amjad Khan in a court two years ago. Amjad filed a police complaint against Javed Khan and his uncle for murdering his wife and father.
Meanwhile, police found the body of an Afghan man in Dagi Khel area of Nowshera.
The unidentified Afghan was accused of forcibly taking Shabeena Naz, daughter of Abdul Rasheed, to Afghanistan.
The man was probably killed by the woman`s brothers, who were now absconding, police said.
