ISLAMABAD: Alizah Arshad, daughter of Shaheed Arshad Sharif, has written a letter to Chief Justice of Pakistan Justice Umar Atta Bandial regarding the investigation into the assassination of her father.

She appealed to the CJP to constitute a Judicial Commission to probe the murder of the martyred journalist.

She added that several cases were registered against her father in different cities of the country and made it difficult for him to live in Pakistan. Then he had to leave the country and went to Dubai but even there, the situation was different for him and life was made impossible for him in Dubai as well.

He was forced to leave Dubai and he had to go Kenya where he was murdered, Alizah lamented.

She pleaded the CJP that they should be given justice, addressing the CJP, she said, “You are a influential person and only you can get the investigation into the assassination of my father carried out.”

It is pertinent to mention here that Sharif left Pakistan in August after a number of cases were registered against him. It was reported that he was initially staying in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) after which he went to Kenya.

Arshad Sharif was shot dead in Kenya on October 24. Initially, Kenyan media quoted the local police as saying Sharif was shot dead by police in a case of “mistaken identity”.

But later reports from the Kenyan media reconstructed the events surrounding the killing, stating that an occupant in Sharif’s car at the time of his killing was believed to have shot at paramilitary General Service Unit (GSU) officers.

The government subsequently formed team that travelled to Kenya to investigate the killing.

On Nov 29, 2022, the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) and Intelligence Bureau (IB) wrote a letter to the Consul General of Pakistan in Dubai seeking information on slain journalist Arshad Sharif’s stay in the city before his murder earlier this year.

On 30 Nov, 2022, all nine plaintiffs of first information reports (FIRs) registered against slain journalist Arshad Sharif failed to appear before the investigation committee.

The investigation committee had summoned all nine plaintiffs of first information reports (FIRs) registered against slain journalist Arshad Sharif in different cities of Pakistan.

The investigation committee had penned down letters to Inspector-Generals (IGs) of three provinces and Islamabad and summoned all nine plaintiffs of first information reports (FIRs) registered against Arshad Sharif.

The inquiry committee, in its letters, instructed Inspector-Generals (IGs) to ensure the attendance of plaintiffs in FIRs.

The letter noted that five FIRs were registered against Arshad Sharif in Sindh, one in Islamabad and three in Balochistan. The FIRs registered against the slain journalist include serious charges like treason and sedition.

Earlier on November 24, it was reported that a two-member fact-finding committee set up by the federal interior ministry to investigate the killing of renowned journalist Arshad Sharif has summoned Tasneem Hiader Shah, who claimed to be a spokesperson of PML-N, on November 29.
