205

The Joint Investigation Team constituted to probe Zainab rape, murder case will also investigate seven other similar unfortunate cases that took place in Kasur, informed the Punjab government spokesperson.

The JIT has been directed to complete its investigation shortly, as the police will immediately send charge-sheet against the suspect to the court in the light of its investigations.

Meanwhile, the TV anchor who claimed that the suspect Imran Ali holds 37 bank accounts did not appear before the JIT today. The senior journalist also skipped the JIT’s meeting held yesterday as well. The State Bank of Pakistan has rejected his claim.

The State Bank, in a letter to the joint investigation team formed to probe the rape and murder of Zainab, confirmed that suspect Imran Ali had no commercial bank accounts.

 “All commercial banks have informed that they have searched their databases and found no account of the accused against the said CNIC,” the letter read.

Announcing the findings of the central bank during a news conference on Friday, Punjab government spokesman Malik Ahmed Khan said allegations regarding the primary accused by a television anchor were “fake and fabricated” and were issued without any consideration regarding consequences.
