Abdul and his wife Mehwish had appeared on Aamir Khan's reality show Satyameva Jayate. Speaking to CNN-IBN, Mehwish said she suspected her family was behind the killing. "I'm sure of this because the day we left home, there was a meeting held and they decided to shoot us down whenever they find us. This was their goal and they have succeeded in it," Mehwish said.
