Pakistani Police Told to Ensure Security as Naqeeb’s Father Facing Life Threats

An antiterrorism court has directed the police to ensure security to the father of Naqeebullah Mehsud, who is the complainant in the murder case of the aspiring Waziristan model, as he has not been appearing in court to testify against former SSP Rao Anwar and other policemen reportedly due to threats to his life.

Rao Anwar, then DSP Qamar Ahmed Shaikh along with their 25 detained and absconding subordinates have been charged with allegedly kidnapping for ransom Naqeeb and three others and killing them in a fake encounter by dubbing them as militants linked to banned Daesh [the Arabic acronym for the militant Islamic State group] and Lashkar-i-Jhangvi, foisting fake recoveries of weapons and explosives and hiding the evidence of the ‘fake’ encounter.

The killings that took place on Jan 13, 2018 in Shah Latif Town had sparked a wave of nationwide protests by human rights activists.
