A teenage girl was allegedly murdered by her father, along with her cousin, on the grounds of karo-kari in Rasool Bux Weesar village situated within the jurisdiction of the Saddar police station early Tuesday morning.
The alleged murderer, Mushtaq Weesar, suspected that his 15-year-old daughter, Gul Bano, had an illicit relationship with his 17-year-old nephew Dur Muhammad.
On Tuesday morning, when the incident happened, all the family members were sleeping, when Weesar saw Bano and Muhammad sitting together and talking. Seeing this, he wounded both with a wooden stick, then strangled them to death and evaded the scene.
Upon information, the Police reached the place where the incident had happened and shifted both the bodies to Civil Hospital, Jacobabad for post-mortem.
The Saddar police raided different places and apprehended Weesar, which was also confirmed by an official at the Saddar police station. The official, requesting anonymity, also said that the suspect has confessed to murdering the two teenagers.
