KARACHI: Former Malir Senior Superintendent of Police (SSP) Rao Anwar’s convoy came under attack in Malir area of Karachi where assailants hurled grenades and opened fire on the police vehicles. The policemen escaped unhurt, however, five attackers were killed in retaliatory fire, said Anwar.

The SSP said he was returning from slain DSP Fateh Muhammad Sangi’s residence, who was martyred earlier on Friday, when unidentified assailants, in one car and on three motorcycles, hurled grenades and opened fire on his convoy.

Anwar stated that he was heading to inspect the incident site where DSP Sangi was killed when his convoy came under attack. “Police retaliated promptly to the attack, killing five attackers, who appear to be Taliban,” said the SSP.

He further said that weapons and grenades were recovered from the killed attackers; however, their identities were still unknown.
DSP Sangi along with his security guard and driver was shot dead on Friday morning in a gun attack that police believed was the job of banned Tehreek-e-Taliban Pakistan.

The four attackers riding motorcycles intercepted the car at Bata Morr in Gulshan-e-Hadeed Phase-I and opened fire on it from three different directions, leaving all the three officials dead on the spot, said Karachi-East SSP Pir Mohammed Shah who had just taken the additional charge of Malir SSP after the late night transfer of SSP Rao Anwar.

Sindh Police Inspector General (IG) Ghulam Hyder Jamali had on Thursday transferred SSP Rao Anwar from Malir. The provincial police chief said Rao Anwar “misused” his authority following which he had been transferred from Malir.

The police spokesperson said the the IG’s orders came after Sindh Chief Minister Qaim Ali Shah took serious notice of Rao Anwar’s press conference earlier in the day, in which he levelled serious allegations against the Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM).

The SSP had claimed that the MQM had links with Indian spy agency RAW, and that the party sent workers to India to get them trained by RAW and eventually use that training to spread terror in Pakistan.
