Rao Anwar moves bail plea at ATC in Naqibullah murder case
May 12, 2018

KARACHI: Former Senior Superintendent Police Malir Rao Anwar on Saturday filed a bail application at an Anti-Terrorism Court (ATC) in abduction and extrajudicial murder of Naqeebullah Mehsud, a resident South Waziristan Agency.

The court issued notice to the prosecution side to submit reply in response to the suspended police officer’s bail plea until May 14.

Anwar along with 10 of his subordinates and 15 other absconders were arrested on charges of abducting Naqeebullah for ransom and later killing him along with three other detainees in a fake encounter on Jan 13 on the outskirts of the city.

The Supreme Court took notice of Mehsud’s death and it caused widespread outrage on social media and protests by political and religious parties.

The former SSP surrendered to the apex court on March 21 and subsequently was brought to Karachi to stand trial in the murder case.

Naqeebullah Mehsud’s family members alleged that he was killed in a fake encounter. Following this allegation, a three-member inquiry committee, tasked to look into the allegations, termed the encounter a staged one and recommended action against Anwar and his team.

A murder case was registered against Rao Anwar and others under Sections 302 (premeditated murder), 365 (kidnapping with intent secretly and wrongfully to confine person), 344 (wrongful confinement for 10 or more days), 109 (abetment) and 34 (common intention) of the Pakistan Penal Code read with Section 7 of the Anti-Terrorism Act, 1997 on at the Sachal police station.
