A man shot dead his wife and nephew in a so-called honour killing case as he suspected an illicit relationship between the two in Sargodha on Wednesday. The accused, Saifullah, was uncle and husband in relation to the dead ones – Asif and Asya.
The accused after gun down both managed to run away from the crime scene. First, he gunned down his nephew as he reached his brother’s house where his nephew was already present.

Police reached the site and shifted the bodies for post mortem and further investigation.
The incident occurred in the premises of the Satellite Town Police Station in Sargodha.

Local forensic and crime scene units arrived and collected the evidence from the crime scene. The local police teams have been constituted to arrest the accused.—INP
