A father from Mianwali, who was accused of killing his week-old daughter by shooting her five times has been arrested. Shahzeb Khan murdered his newborn daughter, Jannat Khan, in cold blood because he wanted a male offspring. Other family members were also present at the house where the incident took place, though the man escaped after pointing his pistol at them.
“The police were told by the complainants that the killer had been complaining for three or four days that he had wanted a son and he had been very angry,” Zarrar Khan, spokesperson for Mianwali police told media.
“His wife also confirmed that he was angry about having a daughter and wanted a son.”
