Muhammad Afzal Khan from Phuman Shah, Depalpur, was living with his wife Naveeda Khannum and two children in a rented flat along the Lahore road. He was a waiter. Muhammad Liaqat from Rukanpura, Depalpur, a colleague of Afzal, started living with them and allegedly developed relations with Naveeda. Police said that on April 15, 2003, they both injured Afzal by hitting him on his head and told his family that he fell down the stairs. He was admitted to the THQ Hospital, Burewala. Later he was referred to the Nishtar Hospital, where he died.
