Jamshoro: Absconding ex-UC nazim arrested
DADU, Feb 3: Police arrested former union council nazim Abdul Sattar Narejo from the Toll Plaza of Jamshoro on Thursday when he was going to Jamshoro from Karachi in a car.
Mr Narejo was wanted to police in the murder case of Mohammad Amin Narejo, resident of the village of Mitho Babar, since 2001. Ten of the 12 persons nominated in the FIR were arrested and one died while Abdul Sattar Narejo was absconding.
On Dec 23, 2010, Chief Justice Iftikhar Mohammad Choudhry directed the DPO of Dadu to arrest Mr Narejo and produce him in the court.
According to DPO Javed Jiskani, the former nazim will be produced before the Supreme Court in Islamabad on the next hearing in February 2011. After his arrest Abdul Sattar was brought at Dadu.
The DPO told reporters that Narejo had been absconding since 2001 and he was not arrested because of negligence of police. Seventeen officers of the district police, including three DSPs, terminated from services, who were posted as SHOs at Khairpur Nathan Shah police station in the past, but failed to arrest him.
Two sub-inspectors were also terminated for leaking information to him before police raids on different places.
