LAHORE - Police arrested three accused of murder of model Abeera,  SSP Investigation Rana Ayaz Saleem told the media Saturday.

The cop said the arrested people included Uzma Rao alias Tooba, Zeshan and Farooqur Rehman. He said the accused during preliminary probe said Tooba, the main accused, murdered Abeera as she refused to help Tooba in killing her ex Babar Butt. According to another source, Tooba claimed that Abeera had relationship with Butt.

The accused revealed that she killed Abeera by mixing poison in her food with the consultation of Farooq and Zeshan.

Police claimed that Tooba also killed a cameraman of private TV channel Yousaf Khokhar since she believed that the ex divorced her on his advice.

Farooq was aware of the murder plan and he introduced Tooba to Zeeshan who fetched the poison. After the murder of Yousaf, the accused decided to murder Abeera.  Tooba told the police that she met Abeera in a local hotel and they became good friends.

Abeera who was living in hostel shifted with Tooba at her residence in Model Town. During her stay, Tooba informed Abeera about the murder plan of Babar Butt. Earlier, Abeera was agreed to help Tooba but, later on, she refused to do so.
