KARACHI: The Sindh High Court (SHC) on Thursday directed the provincial police chief, AD Khawaja to supervise the interrogation of all ‘half fried and full fried’ cases and sought a report in this regard.
A division bench was hearing a petition by Abdul Jabbar Talpur’s father, a youth from Matiari who was allegedly killed after being detained by the law enforcement agencies two years ago.
The petitioner submitted that his son Jabbar and brother were taken into custody and later Jabbar was killed in a fake encounter. He alleged that Nawabshah ASP confessed before the Joint Investigation Team (JIT) that the police wanted to ‘half fry’ (arrest in injured condition) Jabbar but he mistakenly got ‘full fried (killed).
Expressing dissatisfaction with the provincial task force report, the bench asked the inspector general of police (IGP) to supervise the investigation of extrajudicial killings himself and submit the report. It also summoned the concerned SHO in the next hearing.
