Woman arrested for killing neighbours

Karachi: A couple was shot dead by their neighbour over a dispute in Darakhshan police limits, while a gangster was shot dead in the Baghdadi police area.

Forty-year-old Bilal and his wife, 32-year-old Ghazala, were shot dead inside their flat (A-112) situated at Street-10, Khayaban-e-Badar, Phase-V, DHA, allegedly by their neighbour, Misbah, and her cousin Omer. A case has been registered and Misbah has been arrested.

The residents and the police said that Ghazala had a dispute with Misbah on Saturday night and they had also scuffled with each other. Later, Ghazala’s husband Bilal along with other residents reached there and settled the matter.

On early Sunday morning morning, Misbah called her cousin Omer who came at her flat carrying his TT pistol. He went straight to Bilal’s house, broke open the door and shot at Bilal and Ghazala before fleeing. Bilal died on the spot, while Ghazala succumbed to her injuries at a hospital. Soon after the incident, the residents got hold of Misbah and handed her over to the police.

Bilal worked at a garment firm at a prestigious position and the couple hailed from Faisalabad. The police registered a case against Misbah and her cousin Omer on the complaint of Bilal’s friend Shahzada Khurram. Further investigation is under way.
