KARACHI (92 News) – The anti-terrorism court approved the supplementary challan of the Naqeebullah murder case on Wednesday.
According to the challan, the encounter was fake and pre-planned. According to the geo-fencing report, Malir former SSP Rao Anwaar was present at the place of incident.
Meanwhile, Rao Anwar failed to appear before court for his “deteriorating health conditions”.
During the hearing, the authorities informed the court that Anwar has fallen sick and a doctor had come to check him. Anwar’s medical certificate, submitted to the court, stated that Anwar can’t be presented due to his illness, the exact nature of which was not mentioned.
Moreover, investigating officer SSP Dr Rizwan’s non-appearance in court irked the ATC judge who summoned him immediately. He later appeared before the court.
The court also ordered authorities to ensure Anwar’s appearance in the next hearing, warning of summoning his doctor otherwise. The court then adjourned the hearing till May 14, extending his judicial remand.
Salahuddin, lawyer of Naqeebullah’s father, said that the primary suspect in the high-profile case was brought to court without handcuffs at the last hearing. Justice can’t be dispensed if Rao Anwar keeps getting protocol, he remarked.
