Woman, three children axed to death in Peshawar

PESHAWAR: A woman and her three minor children were found murdered in the limits of Paharipura police station here on Friday.

Police said the incident took place in Islamabad Mohallah locality.

A police official told media it was not immediately clear when the incident took place as they came to know about it around 11am on Friday. “When police personnel reached the house, they found a woman and three children dead,” the official added. He said that the slain were killed with an axe. He identified them as Bakht Meena, 32, wife of Umara Khan, Gul Meena, 7, Ameena, 6, and Waqas, 2.

The police official said the family head, Umara Khan, was untraced so far. He said Bakht Meena’s mother had nominated Umara Khan and four other people identified as Syed Wali, Akram, Amanullah and Misri Khan in the murder case.

Amanullah and Misri Khan, who have been charged for facilitating the murder of four people, are already behind bars for murder of a sister of the slain women some years back.

The remaining accused had not yet been arrested, the official said, adding a domestic dispute was probably the reason behind the murder incident.
