Two accused sent to jail in Shahnaz Ansari murder case

An anti-terrorism court in Naushahro Feroze on Monday sent two accused to jail on seven-day judicial remand for their alleged involvement in the killing of Pakistan People’s Party (PPP) provincial lawmaker Shahnaz Ansari.

The two accused Waqar Khohkar and Akhter Khokhar were presented before an anti-terrorism court amid strict security measures.

The ATC judge sent Waqar and Akhter Khokhar to jail on seven-day judicial remand and adjourned the hearing.

The accused were arrested on March 1, when the police, on a tip-off, conducted raid at a house in Naushahro Feroze.

It is pertinent to mention here that Shahnaz Ansari had been shot dead in Naushahro Feroze over a property dispute on February 15.

According to police, the PPP leader had been shifted to Nawabshah hospital in an injured condition where she had taken her last breath.

The police had said that she had been attacked over differences in a matter related to land ownership in Naushahro Feroze.
