He said, “This instead was a case of honour killing in which a cop, Haji Khan, associated with police, killed his girlfriend under suspicion of having an illicit relationship. He used his personal rifle.”
After murdering the woman the cop tried to kill himself, however, survived the self-inflicted injuries.
Consequent to reports forwarded by the doctors and necessary investigations by the police, Haji Khan was immediately placed under police custody at the hospital. His condition was said to be critical.
