Man kills daughters, shot dead
A Pakistan man killed his three young daughters before confessing to police, prompting one officer to shoot him dead, an investigator said.
Mohammed Ashraf, 38, used a knife to cut the throats of his daughters, aged 3, 5 and 9, before dawn in the eastern city of Lahore, said senior police investigator Amir Zulifquar.
Ashraf then went to a police station to report his crime, and was charged with murdering his daughters and placed in a cell.
"As I left the police station after questioning Mohammed Ashraf, one of my guards opened fire and killed him," Mr Zulifquar said.
The policeman who shot Ashraf was immediately taken into custody.
It was unclear whether he had been charged.
