SUKKUR: A man allegedly killed his sister over suspicion of having “illicit relations” with a boy in Ubauro, a town in Sindh’s Ghotki district, according to the police.
According to details, Liaquat Shar reportedly shot dead his younger sister, identified as Subhana Shar, because he believed she was involved in unlawful relationship with a boy.
The suspect, however, managed to escape arrest and fled before he could be detained. Police have shifted the body to the local hospital but made no comment on Shar’s arrest. It was unclear if any search parties were formed to nab the suspect.
Cases of violence against women seem to be on a rise in Sindh as one incident each from Khairpur, Mirpurkhas, Sanghar, and Kandhkot were reported over the past couple of months.
Earlier this week, a man allegedly axed his wife to death in Khairpur’s Piryalo town, police said, adding that they apprehended him before he could manage to flee.
The district police informed that the man confessed to his crimes during interrogation, saying he had killed his wife for having an affair with another person.
