ATTOCK: A judicial magistrate here gave three persons to the police on four days’ physical remand in a couple’s murder case. The accused include Khalilur Rehman, the elder brother of the deceased man.
Sources said the district police headquarters had directed the SP investigation to supervise the probe into the case.
Earlier, the Jand police registered the double murder case against Rehman and his two cousins — Mohammad Nasir and Adeel Khan — for allegedly killing Mohammad
Azeem, 20, and his wife in Mari village of Jand police on February 28. The family of the deceased was not happy after he got married with Nuzat Shaheen, 18, two years back.
The police said the accused after killing the couple outside their house took the bodies inside to give an impression that they had been killed by some outsiders after barging into the house at night.
However the police got suspicious as there was no blood in the room. Later, a police team led by SI Ahmed Khan arrested the three alleged killers on March 4 after registration of a case on the report of deceased girl’s mother, Zameer Begum.
