Kazim Kamal Khan, who had been deported from the US after the September 11 attacks, is accused of killing his American wife, Diana Christo Khan in Lahore.
He was caught burying her naked body in a grave in the locality of Punjab Housing Society, Gahzi Road, Lahore, Pakistan.
He confessed to the killing, admitting he lured her overseas by feigning serious illness.
The police responded to a call from a gravedigger and found Khan burying the body of her American wife covered with a bed sheet.
He had a long-distance relationship with his wife, but she flew to Lahore on July 22 after he claimed to be gravely ill.
He confessed during police questioning, revealing he sexually abused her wife during intercourse and hit her on the head.
When Punjab Police arrived, they discovered Khan partially submerged in a shallow grave, with his wife’s lifeless body wrapped in a bed-sheet. Photos taken by the officers documented this scene.
Subsequent accounts from both officers and knowledgeable police sources outlined the subsequent round of questioning that led to Khan’s arrest. Initially, he allegedly claimed that his wife, who he stated had remained in the US with their 26-year-old daughter after his deportation, had passed away from natural causes.
However, as officers observed visible signs of trauma on the victim’s body, they managed to extract a confession from Khan. This confession provided insights into his relationship with his estranged wife.
Suspecting compromised mental health and drug influence, police stated Kazim Kamal Khan tortured her before the alleged murder, involving a sex toy.
A post-mortem will determine the cause of death.
