Family members alleged that Mujahid Afridi, accompanied by his brother Sadiqullah, was responsible for Rani’s death. They told Pakistan Today that Afridi — who wanted to marry Rani — had issued threats against her in the past. Afridi is reported to be the nephew of Aftab Alam, the district president of Pakistani political party Pakistan Tehreek-e-Insaf (PTI).

Alam said Sunday that there would be “no special favors,” and that “the villains behind this will be apprehended soon enough.”
