Husband of Pakistan Muslim League-Nawaz’s Punjab Assembly Memeber (MPA) Shahmim Akhtar was mysteriously murdered inside their residence in Samanabad on Sunday.
The 70-year-old Mian Kabir Ahmed was found dead inside his room early Monday, the police said, adding that the body had been sent for autopsy to ascertain cause of death.
Akhtar said she was out of her home to attend a wedding ceremony. She accused that a suspect named Nomi poisoned her husband to death.
She told the police that Nomi had been sending them life threats for the past few days.
On the other hand, Punjab Chief Minister (CM) Shahbaz Sharif took notice of the murder incident and directed Punjab inspector general of police to submit a report and arrest culprits involved in the murder at earliest.
The CM also expressed his condolences to the bereaved family.
