JAMSHORO: The police on Wednesday nabbed Ali Noohani, the last remaining accused in the Tania Khaskheli murder case.
Ali Noohani, and Khan Noohani – who along with his associates shot dead grade-10 student Tania in her house after her family refused to marry off their daughter to Khan – were named as the primary accused in the case by Tania’s family, which reportedly received threats for bringing the case to the media’s attention.
While the police managed to apprehend Khan in a police encounter in Dureji area of Balochistan on September 18, Ali Noohani remained at large until his arrest on Wednesday from Sanghar.
Jamshoro SSP Irfan Bahadur said that during the investigation, it surfaced that Ali aided Khan in fleeing from the crime scene. After the incident was reported in the media, the local SHO was suspended on the orders of the Chief Minister Murad Ali Shah for failing to arrest the culprits.
Sindh High Court (SHC) Chief Justice Ahmed Ali Shaikh had taken notice of the incident and issued directives to the police to submit a progress report to the court. Four suspects identified as Nazir Solangi, Nadeem Sheikh, Baaqir Sheikh and Nadir Noohani, were arrested by the Jamshoro police in a raid in Matiari on September 22. The arrested men were accused of playing the role of facilitators in Tania’s murder.
