ISLAMABAD: Police arrested two men for stealing 115 tolas of gold and cash from their friend’s house in Islamabad four months ago.
The police claimed that the two men, Hamza Mukhtar and Muhammad Faisal, had befriended fellow university student Waseem Shahzad. They used to inquire about his house and his family.
Shahzad was clueless about what his friends were plotting. They robbed Shahbaz’s house on July 6 knowing that there would be jewellery stashed at his house on account of his sisters getting married soon.
Shahzad’s father, Muhammad Ramzan, attempted to find the suspects on his own. Upon his failure, he registered an FIR on September 6 at the Koral police station.
ASP Zohaib Ranjha said that the suspects had purchased a car and other items with the money they received after selling the jewellery.
All items have been seized.
