Zaid Shakeel, 27, was shot late Sunday night when he was returning home on a motorcycle.
Police said Salim had asked Misbahuddin, Umair, Imran, Yamin and Farhan to kill Zaid, whom he suspected of having a relationship with a woman from his family.
Farhan, who was with Zaid on his motorcycle at the time of his murder, had conspired with the others to get him killed.
Zaid’s father is a businessman and also works as a contractor.
