GUJRAT: A lady health worker, who was a mother of two children, was gunned down at her house by her sister’s husband over “honour” at Chakrian village in Kunjah police precincts on Sunday.

Police said the suspect, Khawar Imran, who fled soon after the incident was a vice-chairman of the Lungey union council. He allegedly had suspicion about the character of the victim, Bushra Parveen (35), who worked as a lady health worker. She had two children -- a daughter and a son.

According to police, the suspect entered the house of Bushra and opened fire at her with a Kalashnikov, killing her on spot.

A case has been lodged against the suspect under section 302 of the Pakistan Penal Code (PPC) on the report of Mazhar Iqbal, the husband of the deceased woman.

The dead body was handed over to the relatives of the deceased after autopsy conducted at the Aziz Bhatti Shaheed Teaching Hospital.
