KARACHI: Additional District and Sessions Judge, South, Abdul Razzak Memon, rejected on Monday a police report about the case of Saquib alias Sakhi who was killed in what police claimed to be “an encounter” in one of the congested alleys of Lyari town.
Earlier the court allowed an application filed by Bilqees, mother of Saquib, and directed Chakiwara police to register an FIR if a cognizable offence is made out.
The order came on a private complaint filed under section 22-A of CrPC, seeking direction to the police to register an FIR against Federal Interior Minister Rehman Malik, MNA Nabeel Gabol and SSP CID Choudhry Aslam for killing Saquib in a fake encounter.
According to applicant, the man was kidnapped or taken into custody and after an hour his body bearing bullet marks was thrown in the locality.
While deleting Rehman Malik’s name, the court held that he apparently had no nexus with the case. But as for the other two, the court directed the police to record the statement of applicant Bilqees and if a cognizable offence were made out then for an FIR to be registered. The police was also asked to file a report after such an exercise.
