CJOH, the CTV affiliate in Ottawa aired a story on the late news tonight implying that a double shooting appears to be an honour killing. They had a soundbite about "honour killing" included in their report. There was nothing further on the CJOH website.
The bare bones of the story were in today's Ottawa Sun.
A 20-year-old Ottawa man is wanted in connection with the shooting at an east-end mall parking lot early Tuesday that left a woman dead and another man seriously wounded.Hasibullah Sadiqi is the alleged shooter and the dead woman is his sister.
Police are looking for Hasibullah Sadiqi, of Ottawa, who is considered armed and dangerous. He drives a grey two-door, 1992 Mazda 323.
Khatera Sadiqi, 20, who was in the driver's seat suffered a gunshot to her head and was pronounced dead at the scene. Feroz Mangal, 23, who was in the passenger seat was shot about four times and was virtually lifeless, but paramedics were able to bring back his pulse en route to hospital. Family members said the pair were engaged to be married.CJOH is reporting that the shooter was apparently upset that his sister was engaged to Feroz Mangal, who is currently in hospital in critical condition.
UPDATE: 21 Sep 2006
The Ottawa Sun tiptoes around the issue with quotes from Feroz Mangal's brother and by saying the local Afghan community were talking about the couple's "upcoming marriage".
Hameed Mangal said he heard Hasibullah Sadiqi had issues with the relationship. "He wasn't happy because they were engaged," Hameed, 24, said.CFRA reports Thursday morning.
The possibility of Khatera Sadiqi's death being related to an honour killing baffled Hameed as he tried to relax in the hospital's emergency room last night.
