Pakistan seek US extradition over ‘honour killing’

SANDAWALA: Pakistani police say they are seeking the extradition of an American man suspected of murdering his daughter and her British-based husband during a family holiday this month.

Uzma Naurin, 30, a US national, and her Pakistani husband Saif Rehman, 31, were killed on November 1 in Lala Musa town, 145 kilometres east of Islamabad, on their way back from a shopping trip. NaurinÂ’s father, 58-year-old Muzaffar Hussain, who was in hospital in Pakistan on the day of the killings, has since fled to the United States but is now the chief suspect in the murder case, police told AFP on Saturday.

“We have gathered evidence against him. We will present a detailed report in court and try to get red warrants (extradition) against him,” said Nasir Mehmood Butt, head of the investigating police station in Gujrat district. “Once we get him into custody, we will be able to obtain all the information and this case will be solved,” he said.

Naurin married Rehman without her familyÂ’s permission in the British city of Manchester but relatives later attended a full wedding ceremony in the Scottish city of Glasgow, where Rehman was based, earlier this year. The couple and Naurin’s father arrived in Pakistan last month to attend a wedding. Hussain was then admitted to hospital with chest pains, police said.

On November 1, Hussain asked his driver to take the couple shopping in the city of Gujrat. On their way back, they were stopped by four gunmen and killed. Butt said the driver, Adeel, had “admitted” his role in the crime and that records show Hussain made dozens of telephone calls to the driver during the shopping trip, with a last call from Adeel to Hussain minutes after the murder.

Muhammad Zakir, Rehman’s father, wants police to extradite Hussain from the United States. “We want action against this man… He should be brought back and legal action should be taken against him,” he told AFP.
