ISLAMABAD: In a brutal incident in sector I-10 of the federal capital, four people have been found murdered at their home.

According to police, it was an apparent suicide bid by the head of the family who had shot his wife and two daughters, before killing himself.

Only a young man from the family survived, who later told police that he was sent out of the house by his father to the market minutes before the incident.

Police said that the head of the family identified as Afzaal Raza had moved to Islamabad with his family last month. His son told police that his parents were fighting regularly over family differences.

Police also found sleeping pills from the house. IG Islamabad Bin Yameen told newsmen that it seemed Afzaal had drugged his family before shooting them in their head.

He later committed suicide. The son is being questioned by the police. The killing comes on the heels of a similar incident in Karachi where five members of a family were shot dead in their DHA residence.
