One held in car snatch case


Police claimed to have arrested one of the suspects involved in snatching a car from a woman four days ago in Defence.

On Tuesday, two armed men ‘kidnapped’ Advocate Saira Malik in DHA when she was sitting in the driving seat of her car in a street. The suspects drove away the car in broad daylight and disembarked the lawyer at some distance. The suspects fled with her laptop, cash and other valuables.

Police registered a case and started investigation.

On Saturday, police claimed to have arrested Abdullah on Bedian Road. Police claimed that the suspect was a member of Rawalpindi-based car thieves’ gang involved in several cases.

Shot dead: A young woman was shot dead at her house allegedly over business rivalry of her brother in Multani Colony in Shalimar area on Saturday.

Police said Shamshad Bibi was present in her Multani Colony house on Lal Shah Road when someone knocked at the door. The woman asked her daughter Samra to check who was at the door.

As Samra opened the door, three suspects — Bilal, Muazam Butt and Muhammad Ali — allegedly opened fire.

As a result, Samra suffered bullet wounds and fell on the ground.

She was taken to hospital, where she succumbed to her wounds.

Police shifted the body to the morgue for an autopsy and registered a case against the suspects on the complaint of the victim’s mother.

A police investigator said the suspects had rivalry with the deceased woman’s brother Imran over cable network business.

He said that a suspect’s brother, Faisal, was allegedly killed by Imran, and revenge could be the motive behind the woman’s murder.

He said Imran was later declared proclaimed offender and escaped to Dubai, while police were taking measures to arrest him.
