Bilawal orders inquiry into killing of Waziristan youth in ‘police shootout’


Karachi : Pakistan Peoples’ Party Chairman Bilawal Bhutto Zardari on Thursday directed Home Minister Sohail Anwar Siyal to conduct an inquiry into the controversial killing of Naseemullah alias Naqeebullah, a 27-year-old from South Waziristan.
SSP Malir Rao Anwar in a media talk had claimed to have shot down four terrorists, including Naseemullah, allegedly affiliated with Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan and Lashkar-e-Jhangvi, in a police encounter at Shah Latif town on January 13.
However, acquaintances and relatives of the deceased dispute the claim and term the incident an extrajudicial murder.
SSP Anwar informed media on Thursday that Naseemullah’s real name was Naqeebullah and he was a wanted man living in Hub after arriving from DI Khan.
He also dismissed the social media campaign in his favour and stuck to his stance that the deceased was a terrorist.
