KARACHI: The elder brother of Fahim, who was killed along with his friend by a CIA contractor Raymond Davis in Lahore, said they were under no pressure to strike the blood money deal and that the United States was not directly involved in the deal.
While talking exclusively to DawnNews from an undisclosed location, Akram said that government officials had told them about the pros and cons of continuing with the case and we took the decision of accepting the money for the sake of Pakistan.
He declined to answer a question about the involvement of the Punjab government in the case and said that he did not know about it.
He said his family had gone into hiding after the deal because of security concerns.
Akram said his family was not coming out because they feared hostility from the public. My family will come out of hiding in due time, he added.
