RAWALPINDI, June 19: Two sons of Imtiaz Khokhar, alias Taji Khokhar, were arrested by the Airport police on Wednesday in connection with a criminal case registered against them by Sabira Bibi before she was murdered in Dhoke Gangal.

Police said Omer Khokhar and his brother Farrukh Khokhar, along with their security guard Ramzan Khokhar were arrested in connection with Case #642 registered with the Airport police on August 17, 2012. The case was registered one day before Sabira was gunned down on the site of her land in another attack.

Sabira, wife of Raja Yaqoob, had said in her complaint that she had a land dispute with Taji Khokhar, the brother of former deputy speaker of the National Assembly Nawaz Khokhar.

She had mentioned in the complaint that she and her husband had been consulting a lawyer in the district courts when she received a phone call from her house which said her house had been attacked by Taji Khokhar and his two sons along with 25 other armed men.

She alleged that the armed men wanted to murder all her family members as they hurled threats of dire consequences.

When contacted, inspector of Airport Police Station Aziz Aslam Niazi confirmed that the two sons had been arrested and said the remaining accused in the FIR were yet to be apprehended.
