Ayaz Amir’s son killed a man in a drunk driving incident years ago

ISLAMABAD: Ayaz Amir’s son who is accused of murdering his wife Sarah was also involved in a drunk driving incident many years ago which resulted in one death.

According to sources privy to this event, Ayaz Amir was driving erratically in a drunk state near Constitution Avenue in Islamabad when his car hit another car, resulting in the death of the other driver.

Sources claim that Ayaz Amir as well as his ex-wife who is the mother of Shahnawaz Amir used their wealth and influence to hush up the case and quietly paid blood money so that their son wasn’t accused of murder.

Former friends of Shahnawaz state that the journalist’s son was fond of consuming heroin but had tried to quit and restrict himself only to alcohol.

When Ayaz Amir was a part of PMLN, he allegedly tried to get a PMLN ticket for his son Shahnawaz but due to the latter’s reputation, the request was rejected. This is one of the reasons why Ayaz Amir tilted towards PTI.

On the other hand, the Islamabad police have registered a first information report (FIR) at the Chak Shahzad police station in the murder case of senior journalist Ayaz Amir’s daughter-in-law.

The FIR, a copy of which is available with The Pakistan Daily, was registered under Section 302 (punishment for murder) of the Pakistan Penal Code (PPC) on the complaint of Station House Officer (SHO) Nawazish Ali Khan.

The complaint stated that on September 23, the suspect’s mother Samina Shah called the police and informed them that Shahnawaz had murdered his wife “with a dumbbell”.

“My son is present in the house and has hidden the body,” the FIR quoted Shah as saying, adding that the police subsequently raided the house.

“He had locked himself up in his room. When they broke inside, there were stains of blood stains on Shahnawaz’s hands and clothes,” the police said in the complaint.

“He then confessed that he had repeatedly hit his wife with a dumbbell during an argument and then hid her body in the washroom’s bathtub.”

According to the FIR, Shahnawaz also said he had “hidden” the murder weapon under his bed.

Upon examining the dumbbell, the police found blood and hair on it. “We have sent it for forensics,” the FIR added.

The complaint further stated that the victim’s body had been sent to the Polyclinic Hospital for a postmortem examination.

Meanwhile, Journalist Ayaz Amir while speaking to the media expressed his shock over the incident and said that whatever happened with his daughter-in-law should not happen to anyone.

Ayaz Amir refused to comment on whether his son was under the influence of any narcotics.

On Friday, the daughter-in-law of senior journalist Ayaz Amir was found dead in the Chak Shehzad area of the capital.

According to police, the woman — identified as Sarah — was murdered by her husband, Amir’s son. The body was recovered from a farmhouse in Shahzad Town.

The Candian-born deceased Sara Bibi was Shahnawaz’s third wife, the police said.

“The incident is being investigated; whatever facts come out, will be shared,” police added.
