According to the investigation officer (IO), the model’s stepbrother, Aslam, has confessed that he first strangled her and then stripped her dead body to mislead the police and show that it was a rape-cum-murder case.

The investigator said the evidence, including the footprints found at the crime scene, confirmed the involvement of the suspect as he was the only person who visited her that day.
