Staff Reporter

The murderer of Mubashir Khokhar, brother of MPA Asad Khokhar, has made startling revelations during his confession to police while the police claimed to have arrested the co-accused on Saturday.

He disclosed that he had murdered Mubashir because the latter had killed his uncle. “I planned the murder myself, and have already served a jail term in another case of murder,” he told police.

Nazim revealed that he was not frisked by the security personnel at entrance of the wedding hall. “When i entered the walima reception venue in DHA, the security personnel deployed at the entrance did not even bother to check me.”

He told the police that then he went straight inside the marquee and sat with the guests. “Asad Khokhar and his brother Mudassir walked past me twice,” Nazim pointed out and added the pistol he used in the crime was a licensed one which he had purchased for Rs40,000.

“When Punjab CM Sardar Usman Buzdar left the ceremony, I followed him, and when he sat in his car, I opened fire at MPA’s brother,” he explained.

On Saturday, the police did not produce suspects in Mubashir Khokhar murder case in the court, citing a lack of evidence to secure their physical remand.

According to details, the police have not yet nominated the prime suspect Nazim in the case and his arrest has not been shown in the police records.

CIA DSP Qaiser Mushtaq informed that they would not be able to produce both the suspects in Cantt Katchery as they did not possess evidence enough to secure their physical remand.

“Both the suspects are in CIA police custody,” he said, adding that they are collecting previous criminal record of the suspects.

On the other hand, the CIA police claimed to have arrested Umar, the co-accused named in the murder case of Mubashir Khokhar alias Goga.

The police said that Umar along with the main accused Nazim went to attend the walima reception of Khokhar’s son and he kept on waiting outside the hall.

The police have registered a case of the murder of MPA Asad Khokhar’s brother on the complaint of the deceased’s nephew at Defence C police station. Nazim, Umar Hayat, and three other unidentified men have been nominated in the case.
