SWABI: A man and his son were killed over a family dispute in Topi tehsil here on Sunday, the police said.

DSP Topi Ifthikar Ali Khan quoted the wife of the deceased, Gul Omar, 70, as saying that her husband along with his son, Nadeem Omar, 30, was sitting in his house when his son-in-law, Abbas Khan and his father, Fazal Mohammad, entered the house and opened fire. She said both Gul and Nadeem died on the spot.

DSP Ali said daughter of Gul had left the house of her husband a few months ago, and was reluctant to go back. He said a jirga had also failed to resolve the issue.

The bodies were shifted to the tehsil headquarters hospital for autopsy.

The DSP said the police reached the spot soon after the incident and collected evidence.

The Topi police registered an FIR against the accused.

DSP Ali said the house of the accused was found locked when the police raided it.

Also in the day, a man was killed when a speeding van hit him in the district headquarters bazaar.

SHO Swabi city police told Dawn that the body of the unidentified man was shifted to Bacha Khan Hospital Complex for autopsy.

It was placed in the hospital’s mortuary pending identification.
