A man named in the murder of prominent Ahmadi leader in Nankana Sahib near Lahore has turned himself in to the local police, it's been reported in the Pakistani media.

According to The Express Tribune, Muhammad Rasheed turned himself in after the police detained his mother-in-law and had arrested two of his relatives earlier in the day, said Nankana Sahib City Police Station.

Rashid has confessed to the killing of Advocate Malik Saleem Latif, accepting that the murder was over the victim's religious beliefs.

An Urdu statement accompanying a picture purportedly of Rasheed circulating on Facebook, proudly states that the suspect was a member of the Majlis Tahfuz Khatm-e Nubuwwat (MTKN), a Pakistan based anti-Ahmadiyya extremists group with international reach.

MTKN made headlines in the UK last year after their pamphlets and posters calling for killing of Ahmadis were found at several Sunni mosques.

Rashid has been in police custody since the day he killed Latif on March 30th.
