RAWALPINDI: A non-bailable arrest warrant has been issued for model Ayaan Ali in the murder case of customs inspector Ejaz Mehmood.

A local court ordered police to arrest the accused immediately. Warrants have also been issued for others accused in the case, including customs superintendent Zargham and Dr Haroon. All three have been ordered to appear before the court within 10 days by Magistrate Gulfam Latif Butt.

Mehmood was shot dead by unknown assailants at his home in June last year. His widow claimed in a petition that he was killed at the behest of the model because he was the custodian of the case property and under continuous threat and pressure to manoeuvre and manipulate the evidence to favour Ayaan. But Mehmood refused to succumb to the pressure.
