“Since they are the last people who were seen with the deceased, we have to record their statement as the investigations go on,” said the official who spoke anonymously as they are not authorized to address the media.

Mr. Waqar and his brother Khurram have recorded statements with sleuths attached to the Directorate of Criminal Investigations (DCI).

Mr. Sharif was allegedly shot dead by police officers attached to the General Service Unit (GSU) in Kajiado West, Kajiado County.

Already, the Pakistan government has claimed that the shooting was a case of mistaken identity and that they were treating the matter as murder.
