Slain news anchor Mureed Abbas’ wife Zaara claimed on Wednesday that Atif Zaman’s lawyer and family were threatening journalists who were covering her husband’s murder case. In a video message posted on Twitter, Zaara claimed that Zaman—who is the prime suspect in her husband’s murder case—was threatening journalists through his lawyer and family. “You must have seen how fresh the suspect looks when he attends court proceedings,” she said. “He’s smoking freely, he has a lighter and is given mineral water to drink as well,” she added.
