Pakistan court indicts Rao Anwar in Naqeebullah murder case

Islamabad: KARACHI: An anti-terrorism court in Karachi indicted former SSP Malir Rao Anwar in the Naqeebullah Mehsud murder case on Monday. Anwar pleaded not guilty to the charges.
An aspiring model, Naqeebullah was among four men killed in a staged police encounter carried out in January 2018 by former Anwar and his team at Usman Khaskheli Goth on the outskirts of Karachi. Anwar claimed that Naqeebullah, Sabir, Nazar Jan, and Ishaq were Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) militants.
Out of those indicted, the former cop along with DSP Qamar, Muhammad Yaseen, SI Hussain, and Hazrat Hayat are currently on bail while 13 others are imprisoned.
Another seven suspects have been declared absconders after failing to appear before the court. After the accused pleaded not guilty to the charges, the court summoned the complainant and the magistrate who recorded witness statements, and adjourned the hearing till April 11. (tribune.com.pk)
