Lawyer Latif Afridi’s murder suspect remanded into police custody for two days

A suspect accused of killing senior lawyer and former Supreme Court Bar Association (SCBA) president Abdul Latif Afridi yesterday was remanded in police custody on Tuesday by a judicial magistrate.

The 80-year-old Afridi was with other lawyers in the bar room of the Peshawar High Court when the shooter opened fire, according to the police. He was taken to Lady Reading Hospital in a hurry, but he was too weak to survive.

According to the police, Adnan Samiullah Afridi, the attacker, was taken into custody from the scene of the crime and taken to the East County Police Station, where a case was opened.

Dawn was informed by an officer at the station that the suspect had admitted to the crime and that he had killed the victim as a result of a family dispute.

Separately, Peshawar Capital City Police Officer Muhammad Ijaz Khan established a fact-finding committee to determine how the attackers managed to sneak a weapon into the courthouse. This committee was led by the SSP investigation.

Within the next 24 hours, the committee will submit its report.

The suspect was brought before Judicial Magistrate Badar Munir earlier today. Adnan was remanded in custody for two days after the court accepted the police plea.

Funeral The senior lawyer’s funeral was held at the Bagh-i-Naran in Hayatabad.

A number of prominent politicians, lawyers, and others, including PHC Chief Justice Qaiser Rashid, made their way to the funeral home in advance of the service. Additionally present were Federal Law Minister Azam Nazeer Tarar and Peshawar Mayor Zubair Ali.
