Islamabad: Interpol issues red warrant for KP lawyer’s killer
ISLAMABAD: As reported by the Dawn News on Sunday, the Interpol has issued red warrant for the arrest of an alleged killer of a former advocate general of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, sources close to investigation of the murder told the newspaper on Saturday.
The sources said that the capital police have obtained the warrant of Roohullah a week before and efforts are in progress to arrest him and bring him back to Pakistan.
The accused fled to Middle East with the connivance of Peshawar Police and a top political leader of Khyber Pakhtunkhwa.
He allegedly sprayed former advocate general Mohammad Sardar Khan with bullets on Ibne Sena Road in Sector G-11/2 on February 3.
The capital police also approached the police of a Middle East country to trace the alleged killer and arrest him and get him back to Pakistan.
The city’s lower court has declared him a proclaimed offender, the sources said adding the police have also sealed his five arms and ammunition shops in Peshawar, and property worth millions of rupees on court orders.
In August, the investigators arrested the brother of Roohullah from Karachi but Karachi’s lower court released him on protective bail with the direction to appear in the court of Islamabad on October 5. But he did not follow the order.
Five persons were named in the murder of 74-year-old Sardar Khan, a native of Peshawar, and among them Roohullah was as main accused.
The accused allegedly plotted the murder after Mr Khan turned down money the accused had offered in return for losing a land grabbing case he was fighting for Peshawar Development Authority (PDA) against Roohullah in the Peshawar High Court (PHC).
