RAWALPINDI:The Murree police have approached the Saddar Division Information Technology (IT) Laboratory to acquire cell phone data records of three men suspected of involvement in the immolation and murder of a female teacher.

The suspects have claimed that they were not present in the village when the incident took place.

On the other hand, the police have not shown official arrests of two accused — Shaukat and Mian Arshad — in their records, or produced them before a court. The third accused, Riffat Mehmood, had been given into physical custody of the police by a local magistrate.

Meanwhile, more than 60 teachers staged a protest demonstration at GPO Chowk in Murree in favour of Shaukat. The protesting teachers were holding placards and banners inscribed with slogans in his favour, and claimed that he was a retired teacher. The teachers condemned the registration of a case against Shaukat and asked the police to investigate the case purely on merit. Sources said that villagers are also pressuring the victim’s family to withdraw the case.
