Hyderabad: Couple’s murder suspects remanded
HYDERABAD: An anti-terrorism court on Tuesday remanded three suspects into police custody till Nov 5 in the murder case of a young couple. Ishtiaq Sheikh and Samia Detho, who had married of their freewill in November last year, were killed on Aug 23 after they were brought to Mangar Mori village allegedly by the woman’s father, Ahmed Detho, who assured the couple that he had accepted the wedlock.
Some of the suspects, Raheem Detho, Haji Detho and Bilawal Qambrani (son of senior civil judge Mohammad Saleem Qambrani) were produced in court by investigating officer Manzoor Wadho.
The ATC remanded them in police custody for interrogation until Nov 5.
Mr Wadho told Dawn that an application had been submitted with the sessions court praying for the setting up of a medical board to exhume the body of Samia and conduct the autopsy.
The board is likely to be constituted either on Wednesday or Thursday, according to him. The limbs and bones have been kept in the Liaquat University Hospital’s city branch. Police would also obtain a sample for DNA test during the autopsy, it was stated.
The case pertained to the Pabban police station but it is being investigated by Mr Wadho, the SHO of the Husri police station, because of some ATA provisions which suggest that such cases are to be investigated by an officer not below the rank of an inspector.
