NAROWAL: Sialkot police arrested a suspect wanted in a double murder case on Thursday.

The police said Syed Imran Haider, of Ratian Syedan, came from abroad to his village on Eid. On July 9, Haider and his wife Asma Nayla were shot dead by unidentified people when they were returning home from the market by their car.

The Muradpur police, on the application of Syed Kashif Ali, the cousin of the deceased, registered a first information report against Haider’s first wife’s brother Waleed Iqbal and six unidentified people.

The police could not find evidence of involvement in the murder of the nominated suspect during the investigation.

The police changed the angle of the investigation and arrested Mehroz Ali, the nephew of the deceased, who was fleeing abroad. He confessed to the crime, according to police spokesperson Khurram Shahzad. He killed his uncle and aunt to seize their property. The suspect had lodged a false FIR against Waleed to mislead the police.

District Police Officer Syed Zeeshan Raza announced an appreciation certificate and cash reward for DSP Rana Nadeem and his team.
