Ajmal Pahari arrested again


The recently acquitted and released Ajmal Pahari was arrested again by police over 12 new charges including four murder cases here on Wednesday.
According to police, 12 new cases that include four murder cases were registered in Jauharabad police station. He went missing mysteriously soon after his release but on Wednesday the Karachi police made the news of his arrest public.
Mystery shrouded the sudden disappearance of Ajmal Siddiqi alias Ajmal Pahari, the alleged target killer who was released on January 18, 2013, from the Karachi central prison after being acquitted in 11 cases of murder, despite his on-camera confessions of involvement in at least 111 murders, and the joint investigation team’s (JIT) thrilling report on his alleged crimes.
Pahari’s wife had alleged that Karachi police had handed over his husband to the intelligence agencies instead of setting him free as per the court order. The agencies said Pahari was released in the presence of a large number of MQM workers from Karachi’s central prison on January 18 and he must have gone underground following directives from his bosses to avoid his possible arrest in the remaining cases.
