Bahawalpur man kills wife, teen son after reconciliation bid turned down

BAHAWALPUR: A man killed his wife and a teenage son on Wednesday after his reconciliation bid to pacify his spouse was turned down, police confirmed.

Officials at the Samasatta police station said the man — identified as Ali, a 45-year-old resident of Karachi — had gone to try and pacify his upset wife, Nadra. Upon her rejection of his reconciliation bid, he opened fire, killing both his wife and his 16-year-old son, Kamran.
