Turkish man shoots son-in-law at ‘daughter’s instruction’
A Turkish man has been accused of shooting his son-in-law with a pump-action shotgun because his daughter wished so.
The pensioner, who was identified only as F.K.Ö., raided his son-in-law Seçkin Selek’s workplace in the western province of İzmir on Oct. 10, according to Demirören News Agency.
The man brandished a shotgun from under a cover and targeted his son-in-law, shooting him and his brother Sezgin Selek, as seen in footage broadcast on Oct. 23.
The two younger men were wounded, while the father-in-law was apprehended in the incident.
“I was divorcing my wife and she wanted me to give her 500,000 Turkish Liras in cash, 5,000 Turkish Liras as monthly alimony, a car and an apartment. When I rejected it, she sent her father to shoot me,” Selek told the police.
He also complained that the father-in-law was arrested and that the police did not even question his wife whom he accused as the “instigator” of the shooting.
