KARACHI: A young man was found shot dead in his apartment in DHA on Monday evening, police said.

They said that his wife was “missing” and it appeared that she fled after allegedly murdering her husband.

DIG-South Syed Asad Raza said that the body of Jehanzeb Malik, 34, was found at the 20th-storey flat in a DHA high-rise apartment complex.

He said that the victim suffered a bullet wound in the head from behind.

The body was shifted to the Jinnah Postgraduate Medical Centre to fulfil medico-legal formalities.

The Crime Scene Unit of the police visited the spot and collected three spent bullet casings, four live bullets and a 9mm pistol from the scene.

The DIG said that the victim lived there with his South African wife and two children who were at their grandfather’s home at the time of the incident. The couple had tied the knot around five years ago on their free will, he added.

He said that investigators came to know that the couple had a fight and it appeared that the wife had shot him and fled from the scene. The police had alerted airport authorities to stop her from boarding any flight.

Police Surgeon Sumaiyya Syed said that the victim sustained a single bullet wound in the head.
