The development comes following the arrest of one of the suspected cops by the SIT on Wednesday and also the deposition of two key witnesses, including a policeman, before the Chief Judicial Magistrate, Islamabad. “A suspected cop who is in police custody has provided some vital clues which would help in nabbing the culprits. Also the statements of the two prime witnesses of the incident including a policeman, who deposed before the CJM, have also provided some vital leads and will help in identifying the culprits,” the sources said.

After 24-hours interrogation in the custody, the SIT produced the cop before the CJM, Islamabad, Jeema Basheer and sought his five days police remand.
