During his show at a private TV channel on January 24, Shahid Masood had claimed that the accused in Zainab murder, rape case did not act alone as he is claiming and is a part of an global violent child pornography ring.
"Imran is not only a serial killer but a serial paedophile as well".
A three-judge bench, headed by the CJP, watched footage of Masood's TV show in court and advised the Punjab Inspector General of Police Arif Nawaz Khan and a joint investigation team (JIT) to probe the evidence provided by the anchorperson.
"After the arrest of Imran Ali in the Zainab case, a tale of a well-connected operation of child pornography, abuse & murder is unravelling as he is found to have numerous bank accts", the PTI chairperson said in a tweet on Thursday.
Zainab was raped and killed and her body was recovered from a trash heap in Kasur on Jan 9, five days after she went missing from home.
So far Imran, who will be tried before an anti-terrorism court, has not hired a lawyer to represent him. He was a resident of the same neighbourhood as Zainab. She had been tortured, raped and strangled.
Imran spent hours around Zainab's house.
