A plea filed in the Sindh High Court (SHC) to cancel bail of former Superintendent of Police SSP Malir Rao Anwar in Naqeebullah Mehsud murder case.

Barrister Faisal Siddiqui submitted the plea in Sindh High Court.

He pleaded the court to cancel Rao’s bail as he terrorized the society by killing people of alleged fake encounters including Naqeebullah Mehsud.

The SHC issuing notices to the concerned authorities fixed February 13 to hear the plea.

Earlier Sindh High Court (SHC) on 24th of this month rejected bail petitions of the accused policemen named in Naqeebullah Mehsud murder case ordering the trial court to pass verdict in the case within three months.

The SHC announced the verdict reserved earlier, after hearing arguments from both sides.

Policemen namely, Allahyar, Nazuk, Shakeel Feroze and other sought bails from the SHC in the case.

The SHC in its ruling directed the trial court to pass verdict in the case within three months.

On July 11, 2018, the ATC granted bail to former SSP Malir Rao Anwar against a surety bond of Rs 1 million.

However, the Supreme Court turned down a petition by Anwar, seeking removal of his name from the Exit Control List (ECL).

Furthermore A bench of the apex court headed by former chief justice of Pakistan Mian Saqib Nisar had rejected the former cop’s plea.

Rao Anwar had claimed to have shot dead four members of the defunct Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan (TTP) in an encounter near Shah Latif Town in Karachi.

Family members of one of the killed suspects, Naqeebullah Mehsud, claimed that Naqeeb killed in a fake encounter, triggering widespread public outrage.
