Man kills niece in name of ‘honour’ in Karachi

KARACHI: A man shot dead his 19-year-old niece and injured another man in the name of ‘honour’ in Sanghar’s Shahdadpur area on Monday.

Darya Khan Talpur Station House Officer Muhammad Younis Jatt said Samina Talpur’s uncle, Ghulam Hussain Talpur, confessed to shooting her and the man after allegedly seeing them together in a compromising position.

SHO Jutt said Samina died on the spot, whereas the man sustained multiple wounds and was admitted to Civil Hospital Hyderabad in critical condition.

The police officer said the main accused is the maternal uncle of the female victim.

Samina’s body was handed over to her father for burial following a post-mortem examination. A First Information Report (FIR) has not been registered against the main accused as yet. The SHO said that an FIR would be registered on behalf of the state if the woman’s father failed to do so.
