For love or revenge?: Woman allegedly gunned down by husband’s brothers

CHARSADDA: A woman was allegedly gunned down on Monday by the brothers of her husband, who she had earlier reportedly killed with the help of her paramour.

Shamin, 20, of Naguman, was married to Rahat Gul, a resident of Prang, said police official Shafiullah Khan. He added she later reportedly got involved in an affair with Imran Khan, a resident of Urmar.

Shafiullah said she then allegedly planned the murder of her husband with the help of Imran. He maintained Gul was taken to a nearby shrine on some unknown pretext and then shot by the accused couple. Gul was severely injured but managed to escape.

Shafiullah said Gul accused his wife of trying to take his life before he succumbed to his injuries at a local hospital. Prang police then arrested Shamim, who confessed to the murder. Soon after, Imran was also apprehended. Both the accused also confessed to their crime before the court.

Shamim was subsequently released on bail by the Peshawar High Court (PHC), while Imran settled the case with Gul's family and was also released from Charsadda jail.

On Monday morning, however, Gul's three brothers Fazal Maula, Faridun, Murad and their relative Akbar Shah allegedly opened fire at Shamim and her father Rahim Gul as they were en route to the court in a car. As a result, Shamim died on the spot.

"Eyewitnesses said burqa-clad men on two motorcycles opened fire on Bypass Road," shared Shafiullah, adding the assailants managed to escape after the incident.

On the other hand, Inspector Amir Nawaz at Prang police station said Shamim's mother filed a report two days ago, stating her daughter had been missing for the last three days.
