A woman was shot dead in a suspected honour killing case in Sindh's Qambar Shahdadkot district on Wednesday, police told Dawn.
Bahram Station House Officer (SHO) Meboob Ali Mithiani said that Quran Ali Chandio allegedly gunned down his 27-year-old wife using a pistol over 'honour'.
Mithiani said that the accused suspected his wife was having an affair with someone in the same village, adding that a First Information Report (FIR) for the murder has yet to be filed.
"No FIR has been registered yet. If no one comes forward to lodge the case within the next two days, we will register the FIR against the accused on behalf of the state," the SHO said.
He added that following a postmortem at a local hospital, the woman's body was handed over to her relatives.
The SHO added that the accused was at large and a search was ongoing in the area.
