Intezar murder case: Sindh govt transfers chief prosecutor


KARACHI: The Sindh government on Friday changed the chief prosecutor in Intezar murder case.

In a report, the Counter Terrorism Department (CTD) detailed that Intezar Ahmed was killed after the police’s Anti Car Lifting Cell (ACLC) officials intentionally opened fire on his car on Khayaban-e-Ittehad on January 14. It further said that police personnel Daniyal and Bilal were directly involved in the killing. However, Muqaddas Haider, who was serving as the ACLC SSP when the incident took place was cleared and acquited.

Via a notification issued on Friday, state counsel Abdul Razzar Gujjar has been transferred from court number 6 to court number 9.

Separately, Ahmed’s father alleged that evidence of his son’s murder has been destroyed.

Addressing a press conference, Ishtiaq Ahmed, said his son was murdered on January 13 and the case was handed over to the Counter-Terrorism Department (CTD) on his request. He recalled that a joint investigation team (JIT) was also made, but was suspended.

Ishtiaq argued that despite assurances by the Senate’s Standing Committee on Human Rights a new JIT had not been formed.

He claimed that the girl, Mahrukh’s, who was supposedly friends and schoolmates with his son, father had called him from the United States and threatened him saying that “his brother serves on a key post in Karachi.”
