A man in Shangla on Wednesday allegedly killed his wife, daughter and a male relative after suspecting both women of involvement in a relationship with the man, said a Station House Officer (SHO).

SHO Chawga Bakht Haleem told Dawn that locals informed him of the incident that took place in the Shekolai area of Makhozi tehsil.

After receiving the information, he went to the site of the incident and found the bodies of the two women in a pool of blood inside the house, while another body was found on the road, at a distance of approximately 100 feet.

Haleem said that the suspect had killed his relative after killing his wife and daughter.

The SHO said that the bodies were taken to the nearby Chawga hospital where doctors conducted a post-mortem examination.

"We have registered a case [under Section 302 (premeditated murder) of the Pakistan Penal Code] against Abdul Saboor and raids are being conducted to arrest him as he fled [the site of the incident] along with the weapon after committing the crime," he added.

According to the SHO, the suspect was 38-years-old while his wife, Rukhsana, was 36-years-old and his daughter was 18-years old.

Haleem added that further interrogations were underway and efforts were being made to arrest the suspect.
