A woman who was said to have shot by her seven-year-old son was actually killed by her husband, the police said on Tuesday.
The man, identified as Rizwan, admitted to the crime during the investigation, IO Mansoor Sadiq told SAMAA TV.
He was arrested on March 25. Rizwan said that his son had picked up a gun and shot his mother. He thought it was a toy gun, the father had claimed.
The family of the woman, identified as 27-year-old Hina, had expressed their distrust on the husband from the start.
“He had fired on my sister before too,” Hina’s sister said. She had come to our house and only went after the issue was resolved.
