August 6, 2020

A newly-wed couple was found dead at their home in Korangi’s Gulshan-e-Latif area on Wednesday. According to the Awami Colony police, the couple was killed four to five days ago. The police said the bodies were moved to the Jinnah Postgraduate Medical Centre for medico-legal formalities.

The man was identified as 35-year-old Mir Hassan, son of Razi Khan, and his wife as 27-year-old Shabana. According to SHO Humayun Khan, the couple hailed from Sajawal and got hitched about one and a half months ago.

He said the injuries to their heads suggested that somebody hit their heads with concrete blocks. The SHO said the woman’s ex-fiance would be interrogated and that the police were gathering evidence for a thorough investigation.
