Earlier today, Islamabad Chief Commissioner Amir Ahmed Ali constituted a joint investigation team (JIT) to probe the death of a young man in an alleged staged encounter.

SP Saddar Sarfraz Virk has been named as the head of the JIT that also comprises the DSP Ramna, DSP investigation and the SHO of the Ramna police station.

The commissioner formed the probe team under the anti-terrorism act. It is required to carry out a detailed investigation into the incident and submit a report at the earliest.

The security officials shot multiple fires on a ‘suspicious’ vehicle in Islamabad’s G-10 after allegedly trying to stop the driver many times, police said, adding that the officials followed a suspicious ‘vehicle with tinted glasses and tried to stop it many times’.
