SBP finds no bank account of Zainab’s murderer
Islamabad (Web Desk): The State Bank of Pakistan (SBP) found no bank accounts under the name of Imran Ali, the accused in Zainab rape and murder case.
SBP started investigation after the reports appeared that the accused person held multiple bank accounts in the country and receiving foreign currencies on these accounts.
The private news channel reported that the central bank of Pakistan in its investigative report said it did not find any bank accounts under the suspect’s name.
The Punjab government is expected to hold a press conference regarding the matter later today.
SBP earlier confirmed it had received a request from the joint investigation team (JIT) regarding reports by a private media house suggesting that the accused, Imran Ali Naqshbandi, held several bank accounts, including foreign accounts.
Meanwhile, the JIT has also completed its probe into the alleged bank accounts of the suspect but found no bank account under his name and CNIC data.
Earlier this week, a special anti-terrorism court handed Imran to police on a 14-day physical remand. During proceedings, the accused admitted to the rape and murder of Zainab, who was kidnapped near her aunt’s house in Kasur on January 4. Her body was discovered in a garbage heap five days later.
