In the Shah Faisal Colony area of Karachi, a tragic incident unfolded as a husband took the life of his wife through a fatal shooting before ending his own life. The couple had been entangled in a series of conflicts and disputes since their marriage, and the wife had even sought divorce through legal channels.

According to police officials, a man named Bilal arrived at his in-laws’ residence, initiating a conversation with his wife. However, the discussion escalated into an argument, during which Bilal resorted to gunfire, fatally wounding his wife. In a grim turn of events, Bilal turned the weapon on himself, ending his own life.
