CHARSADDA: At least ten members of a family, including women and children, were killed by a man police are describing as a 'serial killer' in the Jendi area of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa's Charsadda district on Sunday morning.
A Charsadda police official told DawnNews that the alleged culprit, Gul Ahmed Said, opened fire and killed Jamal, who was his paternal uncle and nine family members.
The police official said that the culprit was engaged to one of Jamal's daughters and that he had killed his own father and sister a few months ago.
The girl's family members, upon learning about the previous murders, had refused to give her hand in marriage.
The refusal provoked the culprit into killing the family, according to police sources.
Most of the victims were shot in their heads and faces.
Police registered a First Information report (FIR) against Gul Ahmed Said in Tangi police station.
