Police on Sunday arrested a suspect for his alleged involvement in the murder of a couple in New Karachi.
According to police, the suspect, identified as Rafi Jan Hayat, was involved in a double murder case in New Karachi. Police said the suspect confessed to the crime during the initial interrogation process, adding that he was running an electric shop and had borrowed Rs1.4 million from the man who was killed, Jamil, for the business and used to pay monthly installments of Rs72,000 to the person who was killed.
However, due to the financial crisis, he has been unable to pay the deceased’s monthly installments for the past several months. The suspect reportedly told police that the man who was killed threatened him for not paying the monthly installments, in which he planned to kill him.
On February 17, Hayat went to the house of the deceased where he killed him with a hammer, police said, adding that when Jamil Farhat’s wife tried to save her husband, she also killed him with the same hammer. A case has been registered and an investigation is underway.
