Dr Najeeb Khan replaces Rao Anwaar as SSP Malir


A day after SSP Malir Rao Anwaar had been suspended for misusing his authority, Dr Muhammad Najeeb Khan has been named as the new SSP for the district.

Sindh Chief Minister Qaim Ali Shah had taken notice of the ‘unusual’ press conference and abuse of authority by Anwaar, following which IG Sindh suspended Anwaar late on Thursday night, ordering him to report to the Central Police Office.

The IG Sindh had initially given SSP East Peer Muhammad Shah additional charge of District Malir.

Earlier on Thursday, SSP Anwaar had presented two alleged terrorists who he claimed belonged to the MQM. The official further claimed that the MQM was actively working against Pakistan.

Rejecting Anwaar’s claims, MQM chief Altaf Hussain had said that he did not wish to respond to his allegations. Further, he said that Anwar’s suspension was not enough and that he must be legally prosecuted.
