LAKKI MARWAT: The Bannu police have solved a blind murder case of a woman by arresting four suspects, including a woman, SP investigation Aqeeq Hussain claimed on Saturday.

He told reporters that two suspects wearing masks had killed a woman, Sareeda Bibi, 45, inside her house in Zargar Mamakhel area on August 19. He said a complainant, Bastaba Bibi had told the Haved police she woke up on hearing gunshots at midnight and found her sister-in-law, Sareeda Bibi lying in a pool of blood. The woman said she saw two unidentified suspects fleeing the crime scene.

SP Aqeeq said regional police officer Qasim Ali Khan had constituted a team headed by him to trace the killers.

“We obtained the caller data record (CDR) of the complainant, rounded up several suspects on its basis and interrogated them. During interrogation, two suspects, Suleman and Fidaullah, confessed to the murder in connivance with Bastaba Bibi,” the police officer said.

SP Aqeeq said another suspect, Attaullah, had hired Suleman and Fidaullah through Bastaba Bibi for Rs500,000 to kill Sareeda to grab her 180 kanals of land.
