PESHAWAR, Pakistan — A man killed his uncle, aunt and their eight children after the uncle refused to let him marry his daughter, Pakistani police said.

Gul Ahmed Said is accused of shooting and killing the family of 10 in the Charsadda district of northern Pakistan on Sunday, district police Officer Shafiullah Khan said.

The quarrel stemmed from an argument over the amount of gold that would be offered for the daughter’s marriage, Khan said.

The daughter, whom the suspect wanted to marry, was also a cousin of the suspect.

Deputy Police Superintendent Tangi Rashid Marwat said Said apparently killed the family with the help of others.

Authorities are now searching for Said, who is also wanted for the November 2014 killings of his own parents, his brother and his sister-in-law.

    Looks like a cultural issue, maybe the u.s. government should just send in female cia agents to track down this man before he keeps killing people. Once he’s find, he’ll probably be with his buddies that are helping him, order a navy seal hit or just get approved drone attack from Obama administration. I think we can call him a terrorist with those actions of judgment against life.

    Why did he kill his parents, couldn’t marry his sister? They don’t appear to be looking very hard for him.

    This monster is clearly a serial killer. I hope they capture and execute the scum. Poor family. May they all rest in peace.
