Islamabad, Sep 25 (PTI) A local court in Pakistan on Sunday approved a one-day physical remand of a senior journalist for his alleged involvement in the gruesome murder of his daughter-in-law.

Journalist Ayaz Amir was arrested on Saturday, a day after his son Shah Nawaz brutally killed his 37-year-old wife with a dumbbell apparently over a domestic dispute, according to police.

The murder took place at a farmhouse located in the capital’s Chak Shehzad suburb where the suspect lived along with his mother. The farm house was owned by Nawaz’s mother who is the ex-wife of his father.
