A nine-year-old boy killed his sister on Tuesday night allegedly over a domestic dispute, police said.

According to reports, Ali Hassan allegedly shot down his Kausar, 12, in Birbal Sharif village near Sargodha. He is reportedly on the run with his father.

A first information report (FIR) was registered on behalf of Nasar Hayat, the deceased’s paternal uncle.  The FIR says Ali killed his sister over a marriage dispute. A search was subsequently underway for the father-son duo, police added.

The deceased girl’s mother had earlier claimed that her son had fired the gun accidentally which caused Kausar’s death.
