It comes after British law graduate Mayra Zulfiqar was shot dead in Pakistan after turning down two marriage proposals.
The 26-year-old was found dead in a pool of blood in her Lahore apartment on May 3, 2021.
She had been strangled and shot in the shoulder and neck.
Her uncle said that Mayra visited his house a few days before the shooting and told him that the two men were threatening and harassing her.
Zahir Jadoon was identified as the main accused while Saad Butt was the accomplice.
The pair allegedly lured Mayra into the party scene enjoyed by Lahore’s young elite, where guns and drugs were prevalent.
