Two FIRs registered in triple murder case

November 05, 2012

SUKKUR, Nov 4: Two separate FIRs were registered on Sunday against six suspects in a case pertaining to the killing of two women and a man in Kashmore on Saturday evening.

A landlord, Haji Walayat Jakhrani, allegedly shot dead his two wives Haseena and Bakhtawar, along with a guest, Wajid Ali Shah, in his house in Walayat Jakhrani village.

The police booked the landlord and his associates, Sher Baz Jakhrani, Hussain Bux Jakhrani and Muhammad Hussain, as well as two other suspects.

Meanwhile, the bodies of the three victims were taken to the Civil Hospital Kandhkot and later handed over to their heirs after medico-legal formalities.

One of the FIRs was registered by Abdul Sattar Shah, the uncle of the deceased guest, who told the police that the landlord had invited his nephew from Quetta to stay in his house for settling a land dispute. He rejected the landlord’s allegation that he killed Shah in a fit of anger after seeing the man with his two wives in an objectionable position. The other FIR was lodged by Mir Hassan Jamali, a brother of Ms Bakhtawar. He said that the landlord killed his sister with some other motive.—BoC
