However, on Monday, Nazakat, Farooq and Ali Raza, all brothers of Razia, entered the house of Ayaz and opened fire on their sister killing her on the spot.

Ayaz escaped from the house but the accused intercepted him in the street and dragged him into the house and gunned him down. The bodies were taken to taluka hospital Kandiaro for post-mortem. No case has been registered so far.

Report sought: The Ist Judicial Magistrate of Moro, Sohail Ahmed Mashori, taking suo motu notice of reports of torture on a nine-year-old boy on Monday, has directed SP investigation to record statement of the victim and submit a report within four days.
