Mother and daughter slain by husband/father on a grudge

HYDERABAD: A mother and her teenaged daughter became the latest victim of honour killing in the Qasimabad Taluka here. Javed Jakhrani killed his wife, Sarah, 40, and daughter, Momal, 15, at their residence in the Indus Gas Colony on Monday. But bodies of the deceased were recovered from their house on Tuesday. Jakhrani presented himself for arrest before the police. He said he had no regret on killing his wife but was feeling bad on killing his daughter. The couple was not living together. They married 19 years ago in Shahdadpur and had three children, including the only daughter who was killed and two sons, who were living with their father.
