Police party suspended over Naqeebullah's killing

The officer (Rao Anwar) claimed on January 13 he killed four operatives of the banned Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) in an encounter near Shah Latif Town in Karachi. He also dismissed the social media campaign in deceased's favour and stuck to his stance that he was a terrorist.On January 18, the Inspector General Police Sindh, Allah Dino Khawaja, ordered the formation of a three-member committee to probe the extrajudicial killing.On January 20, the committee found the 27-year-old innocent, sources informed Geo News.

Karachi Police has made a decision to register a case against suspended SSP Rao Awar in Naqeebulla Mehsood's murder case.

However, the Sindh Police on Saturday suspended Anwar for his alleged involvement in the "extrajudicial killing" of Naqeeb on the recommendation of the inquiry panel that had also asked the government to place the policeman's name on the exit control list (ECL).

Hours after a three-member probe committee tasked with looking into the killing of Naqeequllah Mehsud in a police encounter submitted its report to the Sindh Inspector General of Police (IGP) controversial Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP) of Malir Karachi Rao Anwar was removed from his post.

Police on Sunday assured the family of Waziristan native Naqeebullah Mehsud, who was allegedly killed in a "fake encounter" in Karachi, that they would be provided security when they travel to the metropolis to appear before an inquiry committee probing the suspected extrajudicial killing.




Rao Anwar's claims regarding 27-year-old Naqeeb was found to be baseless in the committee's initial findings.

Meanwhile, Additional DIG Sanaullah Abbasi has contacted the cousin of Naqeeb and sent police commandos to bring relatives of the victim to Karachi. Several pictures of Naqeeb have been shared on the social media.

Having arrived in Karachi a year ago, Naqeeb was living in the city area of Sohrab Goth. The majority of such cases remain unquestioned, apart from the few where the families of those shot dead move the court or stage protests.

"We want to meet Naqeeb's family at the earliest so that they themselves can lodge the case", he was quoted as saying.
