QUETTA: SSP district Jaffarabad, Jahanzaib Khan Kakar, was found dead in his office with blood-stained uniform and a bullet hole in his temple on May 16.
The forensic team, based on its findings, provided the authorities proof to register a criminal case against unidentified culprits for killing the police officer.
Forensic experts have declared it as a murder based upon the forensic evidence.
According to the initial police report, the SSP had committed suicide with his own pistol.
However, Kakar’s family denounced the report, alleging Kakar was murdered by some ‘influential people’. They demanded the registration of a criminal case for the murder of the ‘slain’ SSP.
Younger brother of the SSP, Dr Aalam Zaib Khan Kakar said that his brother was receiving threats from unidentified persons after arresting “members of some influential families”.
However, contrary to police claim, forensic expert Dr Noor Baloch, who conducted the second autopsy on Kakar’s body in the Civil Hospital, Quetta, established murder as the cause of death.
His report rejected the police claim of a suicide, as well as the first autopsy report by the doctors at Dera Allah Yar government hospital.
“There is more than sufficient evidence to establish Kakar was murdered. It was not a suicide at all.” said the forensic experts.
The first forensic report was only based on body’s external examination.
When questioned why internal examination was not conducted during the first post-mortem, Dr Baloch said the police officials who brought the body to DHQ Dera Allah Yar asked for an external examination only.
Intelligence agencies also supported the second Medico Legal Certificate and suspect an “insider” involvement in the case.
Sharjeel Kharal was appointed as the inquiry officer by the IG Balochistan to ascertain the cause of Kakar’s death.
The enquiry report is still awaited in the said case.
