Couple killed as neighbours trade fire over use of passage
Islamabad IGP takes notice of the double murder
ISLAMABAD (Dunya News) – A man and his wife lost their lives when their neighbours opened fire on them over a dispute of using a passage near their houses in Barakahu on Monday night.
The deceased were identified as Asim, 31, and his wife Rida Noor.
A brief altercation over the use of path led to the double murder. Police said the dispute erupted between the two families of the area.
The elders tried to settle the dispute, but they failed to bring peace between the neighbours.
On the day of the incident, the two groups once again had a dispute on the use of the passage. They exchanged fire, resulting in the killing of two persons and injuries to a minor girl.
A police team reached the crime scene and cordoned off the area. Police launched investigation after IGP Akbar Khan took notice of the incident and ordered the SSP to arrest the killers at the earliest.
