As Supreme Court of Pakistan has taken Suo Moto Action on the extrajudicial killing of Naqeebullah Mehsud and ordered suspended SSP Malir Rao Anwar to appear in front of Supreme Court of Pakistan which he ignored the orders of SC. Chief justice of Pakistan has taken a notice of the matter and ordered I.G Sindh to provide a timeline for Rao’s arrest or find out his whereabouts.
Police were tracking him through all his cell phones according to which he was in Islamabad on 25th & 26th of January and a special team from I.G Sindh was sent to Islamabad to arrest Rao Anwar by tracking the location of his cell phone with the help of intelligence services. But that team was not successful with his arrest and Rao Anwar claimed through electronic media many times that he was neither responsible and involved in Najibullah’s killing nor he is hiding or running away from the judicial system, and he further said that Police encounters are part of the policy from Sindh Police Services for dangerous and multiple times convicted criminals and terrorists.
According to the sources, six other police officers who were part of the Rao Anwar’s team have been taken into custody and sent for 7 days physical remand and they told police about the different fake police encounters conducted by SSP Rao himself or his team under his orders.
SCP has ordered Sindh Police to arrest Rao Anwar within 3 days and SC also asked IG. Sindh about the current measures they took to find and arrest suspended Rao Anwar.
