ISLAMABAD—A local court on Sunday approved a one-day physical remand of veteran journalist Ayaz Amir in the murder case of his daughter-in-law by his son Shahnawaz Amir.
Ayaz Amir's son was arrested on Friday, allegedly killing his wife Sara Inam, a Canadian national, at a farmhouse in Chak Shahzad.
Produced before Judge Zahid Tirmizi, the police asked for five-day physical remand of Ayaz Amir. The veteran journalist was arrested Saturday after a local court issued his arrest warrants.
Ayaz told the court that he informed the police about the murder, saying the police did not know about the farmhouse's location. His lawyer also maintained that Ayaz was not nominated in the murder case.
However, police argued that it was a high-profile murder of a Canadian national.
Ayaz told the court that Shahnawaz was a drug addict and he had no sympathy for him. He denied the police claim that the veteran journalist, present at the marriage of his son in Chakwal, did not tell Sara about his son's previous marriages. He said he did inform Sara about the earlier marriages of Shahnawaz.
In its order, the court said: "In order to investigate the alleged role of accused or to reveal the innocent/guilt (sic) in alleged offence, it is necessary that IO be granted physical custody of accused. Therefore, for the purpose of investigation one day (01) day physical custody of accused is hereby granted, who is directed to get the accused medically examined from quarter concerned."
