NAB Chief threatened with SP Tahir Dawar style murder

ISLAMABAD – The National Accountability Bureau (NAB) chief Javed Iqbal has been threatened with consequences similar to ones faced by slain police officer SP Tahir Dawar.

The bureau has nabbed a man from Lahore who had dispatched an ‘unknown letter’ to the Chairman, Justice (r) Javed Iqbal threatening that he would face the same consequences as faced by Superintendent Police Tahir Dawar.

In the letter, the NAB chief was asked to withdraw the cases filed against former prime minister Nawaz Sharif otherwise he would meet the same fate as the police officer.

The bureau is expected to present the suspect before a magistrate today; the identity of the suspect has not been revealed.

Tahir Dawar link was murdered last month in Afghanistan. His body was discovered from Nangarhar province after he disappeared from Pakistan’s capital, Islamabad. Tahir Dawar, who belonged to North Waziristan, was posted as the Rural SP in Peshawar a couple of months back.

Before that, he had served as Faqirabad DSP. He also served in the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) and was posted at the Peshawar international airport for some time.
