PESHAWAR: Capital City Police (CCPO) has claimed to arrested two suspect involved in murder of a woman and her two daughters in Tehkal area of the provincial capital.
Addressing a press conference on Tuesday, CCPO Tahir Khan said that on the night between 16 and 17 October, an accused named ‘Disco’ reportedly killed her wife Hussan Bano and daughters Ayesha and Sharmeena by giving them poisonous food and later burnt their bodies.
The main accused Disco is still at large and police has failed to make any clue about his presence.

The accused confessed to the heinous crime, he said adding that they were sent behind bars and further interrogation has been started.
The sources said that three other accused in the triple-murder case Ghulam Mohammad, Nazar Khan and Qadar Jana were Afghan nationals and having Pakistan identity cards.
DNA test samples of deceased Hussan Bano and her two brothers have been taken, the sources said.
The main accused in the story is Disco who is a driver and a performer in local Pashtu films in Afghanistan. According to sources, he has taken his wife and daughters to Afghanistan for some purpose but they refused to stay there and returned to Pakistan. This infuriated him and he came to Pakistan and allegedly killed all of his family members.
It is pertinent to mention that local Pashtu films tarnishing Pakhtun culture and the whole society especially youth and women have been badly affected due to such poor-scripted films. The recently-passed anti-honor killings bill has yet to be implemented in letter and spirit.
