Lahore: Murder accused arrested while trying to escape
LAHORE: The Burki police on Tuesday took into custody a man, Idrees, accused of murder, who tried to flee from the Lahore High Court (LHC) premises after announcement of his bail’s cancellation. Idrees had been accused of murdering his neighbour, 75–year–old Naziran Bibi. The accused and Naziran Bibi had a fight over construction of a drain in their area, during which Idrees hit Naziran’s head with a hatchet, consequently killing her. The accused had filed a bail application, which was first rejected by the trial court and then the LHC.
