In a shocking revelation, the mysterious death of a 'Saraf' (money exchanger) found lifeless inside his car in Peshawar has been exposed as a murder. The victim, Haji Muhammad Asif, was allegedly killed by a woman who had drugged his drink. The police have registered a case against the wife of a Punjab police official and the rickshaw driver involved in the incident.

On August 24, the Khan Raziq Shaheed police station discovered Haji Muhammad Asif's lifeless body inside his car at an undisclosed location. Haji Asif, a resident of Gulbahar number 4, had gone missing the previous day, and his mobile phone was switched off, according to his brother, Haji Waheed.

The police took custody of the body, initiated a post-mortem examination, and launched an investigation. During their inquiry, they discovered that the victim's mobile phone was missing. Subsequently, they located the missing mobile phone with the rickshaw driver, Abdul Mateen, a resident of Musazai, and placed him under arrest.
