The prime suspect in the murder case of a British-Pakistani woman recorded his statement in a Lahore court on Monday.

Saad Ameer Butt, who has been granted interim bail in the case, appeared before a trial court and denied the murder charges. He said that he was friends with the 26-year-old woman but they stopped talking after an argument.

Butt claimed that Mayra Zulfiqar even tried to file a kidnapping case against him after their fight. He said that he stopped talking to her after this and she grew close with another suspect Zahid Jadoon.

The police said that they are trying to place Zahid’s name on the blacklist to stop him from leaving the country.

The woman was found dead in a house in Lahore’s DHA Phase V on May 3.

According to the investigating officer, the victim was a British national and had come to Pakistan two months back. She was living with a friend in a house in the neighbourhood.

“The maid working in the house found her body in her room,” the officer said. “There were multiple torture and bullet marks on her body.”

The woman’s uncle named four men in the FIR. “They wanted to marry the victim and committed the crime when she refused,” the investigating officer added.

“We are supporting the family of a British woman who died in Pakistan and are urgently seeking more information from the local authorities,” a foreign office spokesperson said.

    Allowing Foreign Interference in Pakistani Criminal Justice System is totally uncalled for. it is for the same reason Raymond Davies got scott free. the investigation should be impartial and free. In my opinion it had more to do with the deceased own family rather than someone who was talking to her over the phone. It is easy to do that in Pakistan than in UK because in Pakistan you can easily name anyone in the report. the UK system doesn’t allow these bullshit tactics.
