KARACHI – Sindh Police have registered a case against SSP Rao Awar, who was suspended yesterday in Naqeebullah Mehsood’s murder case.
Sources privy to investigation said that the First Information Report (FIR) of the incident has been kept hidden as the FIR could increase problems of Rao Awar.
Rao Anwar and his team could be arrested after the FIR. The case will be registered after Mehsood’s family would reach Karachi.
On the other hand, Sindh Police Additional Inspector General (AIG) Sanaullah Abbasi contacted Naqeebullah Mehsud’s family who informed him about their security concerns.
Sanaullah Abbasi assured the relatives of deceased Mehsud of providing them security.
He said that he contacted Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Inspector General of Police (IGP) to provide security to the family of Naqeebullah.
Earlier, Malir SSP Rao Anwar was removed from his post after the investigating committee formed to probe the extrajudicial killing of Naqeebullah Mehsud found the 27-year-old to be innocent.
The probe committee had declared SSP Rao Anwar’s allegations against Naqeebullah baseless and stated that there was no proof found of Naqeebullah being a terrorist.
The committee had recorded the statements of 19 officials of the Shah Latif police. The officials, in their statements, stated that the Shah Latif SHO had ordered them to reach the site of the incident. “The terrorists had been killed when we reached the place. We did not make the entry in haste,” he said. Moreover, seven officials apprised the high-ranking officials of the facts.
The committee has also decided to investigate the close aides of Rao Anwaar.
