In a gory incident that shocked the city on Saturday, a man killed his two daughters and injured his wife and another daughter over suspicion about their character.
Zameer Ali Bhutto, a former security guard at the Police Foundation, later surrendered himself to police.
According to police, the man opened fire on his wife Habiba (45) over some domestic dispute in their house in the Sachal police limits.
Their daughters Maria (22) and Dareesha (18) were killed in the firing when they came to rescue their mother. Besides Habiba, her daughter Farzana (19) also received serious injuries.
In her statement to the police, Habiba said that she had married Bhutto in their hometown in Khairpur, and later they settled in the Sachal Goth area in Karachi.
She gave birth to three daughters — Maria, Dareesha and Farzana. She said her husband worked as a security guard at the Police Foundation but he lost his job due to his character.
According to Habiba, it was early on Saturday morning when her husband came to the house and seemed to be drunk. When she asked him for money to purchase household items, he got involved in an altercation with her.
In the meantime, Bhutto allegedly took out his pistol and opened fire on his wife, and when their daughters came to save her, he also shot at them, injuring all of them. The man then fled from the scene.
Upon hearing gunshots, residents of the area broke into their house and took the injured to hospital, Habiba added. Police said Maria and Dareesha succumbed to their injuries. Their sister Farzana received five bullet wounds and her condition was said to be critical.
Maria taught children at a private school in the area while her sisters had been teaching children at home to earn their living.
After three hours of the incident, Bhutto surrendered himself to the Sachal police and also handed over the murder weapon.
During interrogation, he told the police that he had been jobless for the past few months and had heard bad things about his daughters. He said he was upset and developed doubts about the character of his daughters and wife.
Police said that the accused also used to take drugs. A case has been registered and an investigation is continuing.
