Saad Aziz, the main culprit arrested for involvement in The Second Floor café director Sabeen Mahmud’s murder confessed earlier today to killing her.
“We shot her for holding a Valentine’s Day rally,” Aziz reportedly said in his statement to the police.
“My friend was riding the motorcycle but I was sitting at the back and I shot her,” he added.
The IBA graduate added, “When she sat in the car after her Balochistan seminar, I followed her and when her car stopped at Sunset Boulevard signal I shot her.”
Aziz claimed he was a regular attendee at seminars held at Mahmud’s café and was also present at the seminar on ‘Unsilencing Balochistan’ following which she was shot dead.
“We followed her for days and gathered information on her before killing her,” the 27-year-old, father of one said.
Sindh Chief Minister Qaim Ali Shah on Thursday while announcing that four men had been arrested claimed, Aziz, who had studied in the BBA programme at the IBA Karachi, was the mastermind of Mahmud’s murder, and the main accused in the Safoora incident.
Sabeen, along with her mother, was returning home from T2F in Defence Phase-II Extension when her car was attacked near the Defence Central Library traffic signal.
