SULAIMANI — A police officer killed his brother and sister-in-law inside a police station in Kifri town  on Monday (December 9).

NRT Digital Media reporter Garmian Hamai Pur said that the incident appeared to stem from “a social problem” and that two other suspects were also arrested.

Garmian Police Spokesperson Ali Qadori said that the officer took the opportunity because he had a gun and shot them inside the police station.

“He was arrested on Article 406 of the Iraqi Penal Code,” Qadori said.

The Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG) is currently engaged in the 16 Days of Activism against Gender-based Violence. According to the KRG's General-Directorate of Combating Violence Against Women,  at least 30 women were murdered in the first nine months of the year.
