A 70-year-old jirga leader was killed on Monday in Karachi’s Madina Colony.
A man, identified as Gul Khan, brought his sister to the jirga after she had a fight with her in-laws. The jirga, however, couldn’t come up with any decision and took no action against the woman’s in-laws. This angered Khan and he cut the throat of one of the leaders and fled the scene.
The jirga leader died on the spot.
The police said that Khan is a resident of Macchar Colony. A case has been registered against him for murder.
The police are currently searching for him.
