Four men have been arrested
Four men were arrested on Tuesday for murdering a woman and man in the name of honour in Charsadda, according to the police.
The suspects included the brother-in-law and father-in-law of the woman who was a widow with four children. The man, on the other hand, hailed from District Khyber and was an officer at Bajaur Frontier Corps.
The police said that both of them had been in contact over the phone and the woman had allegedly called the man to her house. “When her relatives got to know about this they shot both of them,” the Charsadda SHO said.
Both the bodies have been shifted to the District Headquarters Hospital.
