Earlier, the killing of Naqeebullah Mehsud in the alleged police encounter in Malir has raised several questions. The issue was raised in the social media after 92 News aired the news whether the encounter was real or fake.
Sindh Home Minister Sohail Anwar Siyal had ordered the DIG South to probe into the matter.
Meanwhile, PPP chairman Bilawal Bhutto has taken notice of the incident.
In a statement on the social media, PTI chairman Imran Khan said that the situation of the Sindh police is also very bad. “Rao Anwaar murdered Naqeeb Mehsud,” he said.
