‘Turn over Malik Fahad murder case to Sindh police,’ Shah challenges Nisar

Khursheed Shah challenges Nisar

ISLAMABAD: Leader of the Opposition in the National Assembly Khursheed Shah on Thursday challenged Interior Minister Chaudhry Nisar to turn over the Malik Fahad murder case to the Sindh police, saying it would be solved within a week.

Former Senate chairman Mohammad Mian Soomro’s nephew Malik Fahad was killed in an armed clash on Monday while attempting to mediate between two parties.

Khursheed Shah lambasted Nisar’s ‘Safe Cities’ project which was launched in the capital in June, furious that a murder took place despite the much-lauded project and thousands of CCTV cameras in the city.

“The Safe Cities project was launched in Islamabad and a lot of credit was claimed for it, with 3,000 cameras installed in the city as well as its entry points, and still he [Fahad Malik] was killed senselessly in broad daylight,” Shah said.

After the tall claims made by Nisar, the case should be handed over to the Sindh police which will solve the case within a week, Shah said.

Shah also lashed out at Nisar over threats to reopen corruption cases against him and Leader of the Opposition in the Senate Aitzaz Ahsan.

“Whenever I speak out against the government, I am threatened with the reopening of cases against me.”

“If there is evidence against Aitzaz Ahsan and I then why are we not arrested yet? The government threatens the opposition whenever it is criticised; our histories and cases are opened,” said Shah.

Shah was speaking at Soomro’s home where he went to offer his condolences.

“The government is trying to arrest the murderers and bring them to justice as soon as possible,” said Finance Minister Ishaq Dar, who was also present at Soomro’s house to offer his condolences.
