BANNU, 5 December: The inquiry report into the death of Naseeb Nawaz, a policeman who was murdered in Bannu few days ago, has not been finalised yet and his aged parents are in a state of deep shock over mysterious circumstances surrounding the sudden death of their son.

Nothing can console the pained parents of the slain policeman who even don’t know the reason behind the death of their son. Mother of Naseeb Nawaz says her son was very happy when he was going for duty. She said Naseeb Nawaz kissed his son on the head and then left for duty on motorcycle. However, she said instead of coming back on his motorcycle, the body of her son arrived at the house. She said this incident has destroyed their lives for ever.

She said Naseeb Nawaz also talked to his wife and cleaned the motorcycle before leaving his house. “I went to the door and kept watching my son till he disappeared on his motorcycle. His death has ruined my life,” she said.

Naseeb Nawaz, who hailed from Kalakhel village of Bannu, was found dead in mysterious circumstances five days ago when he was performing duty at the gate of Bannu Cantonment along with the Pakistan Army personnel. There is no eyewitness to his death and no one has claimed responsibility of killing him. However, official sources claimed that he might have committed suicide.

Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Inspector General Police (IGP) Salahuddin Mehsud has ordered Bannu Police to conduct thorough inquiry into the matter.

District member from Union Council Kalakhel Shahid Khan said the area people will launch protests if the bereaved family was not provided justice within three days.

“Naseeb Nawaz was murdered by terrorists and he did not commit suicide. We have temporarily buried Naseeb Nawaz. We will exhume his body and keep it in front of DIG’s house as mark of protest if Shaheed Package was not given to him,” Shahid warned.

Protests might be staged over the death of Naseeb Nawaz and inquiry report may also surface, but he will never return to his ruined house.
