LAHORE: A Lahore court on Friday approved a four-day physical remand of Rana Muzammil suspected of ordering the gruesome murder of stage actress Qismat Baig in Lahore.
Police produced the main accused before Judicial Magistrate Shaukat Ranjha and sought his remand.
The police submitted that Rana Muzammil was arrested in connection with the murder of Qismat Baig.
Qismat Baig was shot dead in Lahore last month by unidentified persons while she was on her way back to home. The actress was shot 12 times.
A few days after her murder, police arrested Rana Muzammil, who told his interrogators that he had ordered the gun attack.
“My intention was not to kill her. I only wanted her to be left disabled,” he said, adding that he was angered by actress’s refusal to perform in a stage show in Faisalabad.
The police said that the deceased was introduced and promoted to showbiz industry by Rana Muzammal and that two were in contact with each other for many years.
