Gurtong is reporting that a husband shot his wife dead on Saturday after the two quarrelled over missing 200 pounds. The husband, a 40 year old police Corporal was named as Majok-karabdit Garang has surrendered to police and is under detention.

A witness Nyanut Bol described what happened to Gurtong as follows: “As a neighbour, I saw them quarrelling over 200 SSP which the husband apparently lost on Friday evening and on the same day, the husband went and bought a cock and gave it to his wife to be prepared for breakfast.

The cock disappeared like the 200 SSP. So that is when their quarrel began but never ended until the shooting occurred resulting to the death of the wife.”
