Man kills 'girlfriend', commits suicide in Badin: police

A 22-year-old woman was shot dead by her alleged boyfriend inside a government hospital in Sindh's Badin district, police said, adding the man later killed himself as well.

Station House Officer (SHO) Mohammad Ibrahim Jatoi told DawnNews that both Imtiaz Laghari and the woman had been dating for a while.

"The slain woman was attending a training on midwifery at the hospital's outpatient department where Imtiaz had reportedly come to meet her," the SHO at Model police station said.

Laghari and his alleged girlfriend reportedly had an argument, after which Laghari shot the 22-year-old and later killed himself with the same pistol, Jatoi added.

He said both the slain hailed from the same village near Dei town, on the outskirts of Badin.

"Imtiaz wanted to get married but [the woman] refused as she wanted to wait until she finished her training," Jatio said, adding Laghari killed her and then himself following the heated argument.

The bodies were brought to Indus Hospital for post-mortem. An investigation is underway. However, no FIR has been registered till now.
