Earlier today, Rawalpindi police arrested Alvi after a First Information Report (FIR) was registered against him, charging him for the murder.
According to the report, “the deceased was found with marks on her hand and face,” along-with the one on her neck, which became the cause of the death. It also stated that the investigation in the case is ongoing, but from the account of the victim’s sister, it appeared to be a case of murder.
The FIR narrated the account of Syeda Mehwish Zahra, the deceased’s sister, that she found Sadaf Zahra’s body hanging from the ceiling fan at the scene of the death. According to her, the accused had called her from the deceased’s phone, telling her to reach their home urgently as “Sadaf had done something to herself.”
