On Wednesday police confirms the case registration and informed media that the victim, identified as 49-year-old Mahreen, wife of Ali Hassan, was shot dead late Tuesday night on 26th Street in DHA within the limits of the Darakhshan police station.

“My parents were returning home after visiting a restaurant at Do-Darya,” the SHO quoted the victim’s son as saying.
