KARACHI:

A woman was detained for questioning on Thursday by authorities investigating the killing of four TikTokers in Karachi's Garden area earlier this month.

According to Express News, the police detained a woman named Sawera after investigative sources alleged that she had a quarrel with Muskan - the woman among those gunned down - and had called a man named Rehman Afghani after the incident.

The man is said to be in hiding with his accomplices since the incident.

As per eyewitnesses, unidentified people opened fire on a Honda City car, bearing registration number AEN-548, near the Anklesaria Hospital on the morning of February 2.

According to the police, while Muskan died on the sport, the men were rushed to the Civil Hospital in an injured condition where they later succumbed to their injuries.
