BENGALURU:City police are yet to make any headway in the murder case of Air Commodore (retd) Parvez Hamilton Khokhar. 

Speaking to Express on Friday, a police officer said, “We are treating this as a high-profile case and with sensitivity. All suspects are being interrogated. However, there has been no progress yet.”

The ace pilot was found dead by his wife Pramila at their villa in a gated community at Huskur on the city’s outskirts on November 24.

His hands and legs were tied, and according to forensic experts, he was smothered. However, what puzzled the investigators is that the perpetrators have not stolen any valuables from the house.

It has been reported that the perpetrators also locked Pramila, who was sleeping in another room, from outside before committing the crime.

Khokhar had held important positions in the past, including as defence attache in Pakistan, commandant of the Aircraft and Systems Testing Establishment (ASTE) and a stint as project director of the Light Combat Aircraft (LCA) system.
