Four family members shot dead in Karachi


KARACHI: A financially hard-pressed man allegedly shot dead four members of his family in Qasba Colony area of Karachi on Thursday, police claimed.


Karachi-West SSP Azfar Mahesar said that the suspect, Nadir Khan, gunned down his wife, sister-in-law (wife’s sister), his own brother, Zewar Khan along with his wife and escaped.

The police officer claimed that the suspect was facing financial problems since months and had borrowed money from a number of people.

“When the lenders started visiting his house to get their money back, he started levelling allegations of immoral activities against his family members before killing them today,” said the SSP.
