ISLAMABAD: The capital police arrested a man on the charge of murdering three people, including a leader of Jamiat Ulema-i-Islam (JUI-F), in Bhara Kahu on Saturday.

JUI-F Union Council 6 Emir Mufti Ikramur Rehman, his son Samiur Rehman and Habibullah, a student, were gunned down near a mosque.

Police registered a case against three people in response to a complaint lodged by Qari Karamatur Rehman, brother of Mufti Ikram, the police said.

Mufti Ikram was Khateeb and Imam of the mosque and was also running a seminary attached to the mosque.

The preliminarily police investigation showed that a teacher of the seminary had a monetary dispute with the mufti. Both had quarrelled and the teacher, a native of Orakzi Agency, had left the seminary a month ago.

On suspicion, the investigators collected details of the teacher and arrested him by using modern techniques.

Police Media Director SP Amjad Farooq confirmed the arrest of the suspect and said efforts were in progress to trace his two accomplices. He said the murder weapon was yet to be recovered.

The suspects used a Kalashnikov to kill the three persons, as the investigators have recovered empties of the SMG from the spot, the SP said.

When contacted, Mufit Shafiur Rehman, a spokesman for JUI-F, told Dawn that the suspect was a teacher at the seminary run by Mufti Ikram.

“They did not have the kind of dispute which could result into bloodshed,” he added.
