29 January, 2018
KARACHI: The Sindh IGP on Sunday sought the help of intelligence agencies to arrest Rao Anwar for his alleged involvement in the murder of Naqeebullah Mehsud.
Official sources said that IGP AD Khawaja had written a letter to intelligence agencies, seeking their assistance in finding and arresting Anwar.
“He reached Islamabad via a PIA flight on January 20. While on January 23, FIA officials and immigration department stopped him from fleeing to Dubai from the Islamabad airport. Anwar is reportedly trying to escape the country to dodge the ongoing investigation,” the letter stated.
In the letter, IGP requests the authorities for help in arresting and presenting him to the Supreme Court of Pakistan.
The inquiry committee formed to investigate the incident declared Mehsud innocent, saying that he was murdered by the police in a fake encounter.
Anwar has reportedly absconded and is trying to avoid facing the inquiry team. On January 27, the SC gave a 72-hour deadline to police to arrest and present the Anwar.
Earlier on Sunday, another inquiry report revealed that it was a “coordinated fake encounter”.
The probe committee described eyewitnesses accounts saying that Naqeebullah was “picked up” along with two others -Hazrat Ali and Qasim – on January 3 by plain clothed men and taken to Sachal Police Post before being moved to another location.
