MANSEHRA: A man allegedly killed his brother and aunt in name of honour and dumped their bodies in a forest area in Thathi on Tuesday.

“We have found body of a man and his aunt, who left their home some two-week ago from Swabi and got married against Islamic injunctions,” Ayaz Khan, the deputy superintendent of police (Central), told reporters.

The bodies of Ali Zaman, 30, and Begum Jan, 40, were found in the mountainous part of Khaki Police Station. The police shifted the bodies to the King Abdullah Teaching Hospital for autopsy.

Ayaz Khan said that preliminary investigation revealed that the deceased had illicit relations with his aunt, a widow, a mother of five. The couple had fled home to get marry, he added.

He said that Ahsanullah, the elder brother of deceased, allegedly gunned them down and dumped bodies at a deserted place in Thathi.

The cop said that the mother-in-law of the deceased woman had lodged first information report (FIR) with Kalu Khan Police Station in Swabi after she eloped with Ali Zaman some two weeks ago.

He added that the bodies were handed over to the families of both the deceased on completion of the medico-legal formalities here.
