Main suspect, two accomplices flee after committing crime
In a gruesome triple murder, a man opened fire and killed his stepdaughter, mother-in-law and father-in-law in the Dhalyal area of Rawalpindi within the limits of Chauntra police station over a domestic dispute.
The accused along with his two accomplices escaped, while police started conducting raids for their arrest.
Police said that 48-year-old Nusrat Begum had contracted her third marriage with Jhelum-based Saqlain Arshad. The couple was on a visit to the village of Dhalyal at a relative’s home when Nusrat’s son-in-law Shehzad alias Shada showed up to drop off his stepdaughter Iqra.
During a domestic discussion, they exchanged hot words and Shehzad and his two unidentified accomplices opened fire. As a result, Iqra, Nusrat and Arshad sustained fatal bullet wounds and succumbed to their injuries, said a police spokesperson.
Police shifted the bodies to the hospital after collecting forensic evidence from the crime scene. Police teams have been formed to apprehend the accused, the police spokesperson said.
