Woman gunned down by son over ‘honour’

KARACHI: A man shot his mother dead allegedly over honour at their house in Shershah police precincts on Tuesday.

According to SHO Fida Hussain, Haleema Basheer, 40, lived in a house in lane No 13 on Muhammadi Road, and was killed by her son Muneer.

SP Naeem Sheikh said the woman had left the house for a few days thrice in the past, and Muneer had been scoffed at by the neighbours because of that.

However, when his mother returned home after leaving the house for the fourth time, he shot her dead, the SP added.

Police said Muneer was an unemployed drug addict, while his father was a labourer and had four more children with the victim.
