Plea to Arrest Journalist Ayaz Amir, wife Accepted in Sara Murder Case

A local court in Islamabad accepted the police plea seeking approval for the arrest warrants of senior journalist Ayaz Amir and his wife in a case pertaining to the murder of their daughter-in-law, who is a Canadian national.

Senior journalist Ayaz Amir’s son Shahnawaz allegedly killed his wife Sara at home after a row over a “family issue” on Friday.

Shahnawaz — who was detained by the police from the farmhouse in Islamabad’s Chak Shahzad area for being a suspect in his wife’s murder — confessed to committing the crime and said that he “thought” his spouse was having an affair with someone else.
