ISLAMABAD: Two women robbed a house in the Capital on Monday, leaving a housewife injured in the process.
The women robbed the house of valuables, including jewellery and Rs0.14 million in cash. Upon resistance from the family residing in the house, the women stabbed a housewife, injuring her severely.
The victim’s husband, who was not present at the occasion, filed a complaint with the police saying that his wife had been critically injured.
Earlier, Rawalpindi police in October had arrested the alleged killers of a traffic warden who was gunned down while resisting a robbery near Combined Military Hospital (CMH).
The suspects had looted Butt Dairy Shop early in the morning on July 23 in Dheri Hassanabad. They had snatched Rs7,500 and a mobile phone at gunpoint from the owner and staff of the dairy shop but just as they were about to leave, the shopkeeper’s brother-in-law, traffic warden Asghar Butt, came by on his motorbike and tried to overpower the robbers. The criminals shot him twice and fled, leaving the warden dead on the spot.
