Dec 7 (Business Recorder) – “Police have arrested the most wanted accused Imtiaz alias Billi, who was involved in the gruesome murder of a Sri Lankan citizen and desecrating his body,” the Punjab Police announced on its official Twitter handle.
The fugitive who had been constantly escaping police raids was finally arrested from a Rawalpindi-bound bus, it added.
The arrest takes the number of apprehended prime suspects in the case to 27, including the one who plotted to assassinate the Sri Lankan manager, increasing the total number of in-custody suspects to 132.
An FIR has been registered against 900 unidentified persons under many sections of the law, including the Anti-Terrorism Act.
Earlier today, the human remains of the victim of the Sialkot incident were repatriated to Sri Lanka with official honours, the Punjab government said.
