4 held for murder in Lahore
LAHORE: South Cantt police claimed to have arrested four persons who had murdered a former official of a sensitive agency and buried his body in a house in Jasokay Seller, Hujra Shah Mukeem.
According to the police, victim Zafar Islam hailed from Bharpoor village, Kalar Kahar and was living near Bhatta Chowk South Cantt. He developed relations with a woman, identified as Ramzana of the same area, who lured him with an offer of her daughter’s marriage with him. Ramzana and her alleged paramour Ashraf, a rickshaw driver, hailing from Jhang, got gold ornaments and cash from Zafar on the pretext of solemnising his marriage.
Meanwhile, Zafar began pressuring Ramazana to fix a date for his marriage. Upon which, Ramazana and Ashraf decided to kill him and took him to the house of Allah Ditta, paternal uncle of Ramazana, in Jasokay Seller, Hujra Shah Mukeem, almost two months back. The three allegedly murdered him and buried his body in the house of Allah Ditta. The victim’s mother made all-out effort to trace her son but to no avail. Later, she contacted the police who solved the murder mystery. The police have also recovered the body from the crime scene.
