Islamabad, June 27 (IANS) The wife of a slain Pakistani customs inspector alleged on Monday that her husband was murdered at the behest of a model, Ayyan Ali.
Saima Chaudhry alleged in a petition that her husband Ejaz Chaudhry was killed while investigating the model for money laundering, The News International reported.
Chaudhry was killed last year after being named the investigating officer in the case.
The model had been charged with currency smuggling and money laundering last year after more than $500,000 were recovered from her luggage as she was about to board a Dubai-bound flight.
The model was in jail for four months before getting released on bail. She tried to fly out of Pakistan many times subsequently but has been stopped by authorities, the daily said.
