Niwani was only playing the honest broker between two friends who had fallen out over a monetary dispute, the police said.
Quoting the police, Dawn reported on Wednesday that principal suspect Waqas Hussain and his accomplices Nazar Hussain, Arif Khan, Muhammad Amjad and Saeed Amjad Abbas hired a suicide bomber and explosives expert from Wana town in the restive South Waziristan to kill a man named Ejaz Hussain, with whom he had a monetary dispute.
