Man kills daughter-in-law in the name of honour


On Thursday, in a village near Sehwan, Jamshoro district, a woman was shot dead by her father-in-law for honour.

Sehwan SHO Muhammad Ali Khaskheli said Gulsher Channa killed his 24-years-old daughter-in-law Faiza because he suspected her of having an extramarital affair with a man. The man reportedly escaped from the village to save his life. Faiza’s husband works in Saudi Arabia, and she had an eight-month-old child. 

No FIR of the crime has been reported so far. The suspect, Channa, surrendered himself to the police, along with the weapon used in the crime. 

The body has been sent to Syed Abdullah Shah Institute of Medical Sciences for postmortem.

Police have detained three more family members of the suspect for interrogation.
