Reuters – A man shot his wife, their two children and her six family members Monday, burning the bodies by setting her family’s home on fire in an alleged honor killing in Pakistan.
Muhammad Ajmal attacked as revenge for a suspected affair by his wife Kiran, said Imran Mehmood, District Police Officer of Multan. He added Ajmal, intending to carry out the killings, recently returned to Pakistan from Saudi Arabia where he worked as a tailor.
Mehmood said Ajmal confessed to the killings, adding, “This is clearly an honor killing. He saw a picture of his wife with another man and believed she was having an affair. He does not repent of his actions.”
