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.
