CHARSADDA: Three persons, including a woman, were killed in an honour-related incident in Mirza Dher area here on Tuesday.

The Turnab police quoted a man as saying that he was informed by someone that an unknown person had entered the house of his brother, who was in Dubai.

He said when he and his son reached the house of his brother they found its outer gate locked from inside.

The man told the police that after failure to get response from inside the house, he and his son scaled the boundary wall.

He said when his son tried to open the door to one of the rooms a man came from inside and opened fire on his son, killing him on the spot.

The man told the police that he shot dead the attacker and his sister-in-law on suspicion that they had illicit relations.

He said five sons of his brother were in different schools and colleges at the time of the incident and that her sister-in-law was alone at home.

The police said the man presented himself to the police along with his gun and the Kalashnikov allegedly possessed by the killer of his son.

The police said they had registered the case and started further investigations.
