ABBOTTABAD: The Interpol arrested on Thursday the prime suspect in the murder of medical student Asma Rani from Sharjah.
Asma, a third-year medical student in Abbottabad, was in her hometown of Kohat on vacation when, on January 27, Mujahid Afridi allegedly opened fire on her for refusing his marriage proposal.
Inspector General of Police Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Salahuddin Mehsud said that it will take some time to bring the suspect back to Pakistan.
Sharjah police also confirmed the arrest of the suspect from an industrial area.
The KP police had approached the Interpol after the accused, the nephew of Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf district president Aftab Alam, fled the country following the incident.
The Interpol had placed Mujahidullah on its most wanted list.
