According to police, a man allegedly killed his stepmother and stepbrother after finding out about his father’s second marriage at Babuzai in Mardan on Thursday.
Two days ago the suspect, identified as Jamshed, had returned home from Karachi to Mardan. He found out about the second marriage of his father and became furious, said a neighbour.
“He first killed his stepbrother with an axe and then shot his stepmother,” a police officer said.
However, Jamshed managed to flee from the scene.
A case has been registered, and the perpetrator is being searched for by police.
