Ex-army man`s murder: Police widen scope of investigation
KOHAT: A police investigation team has widened the scope of investigation into the cold blooded murder of a retired colonel in the light of the statement recorded by his wife, who has nominated three suspects in the FIR.
Following the statement of the slain colonel`s wife, Naila Mahjabeen, police launched search operation in Defence Colony, Meri Colony, Dhoda and Jarma areas of Kohat and arrested several suspects for interrogation.
The investigation team had collected finger and footprints from the site of the kidnapping and from the car used in the incident. The engine number of the Alto car had also been sent to the excise and taxation department for the identification of its owner.
Colonel (retired) Shakeel Ahmed Tariq was kidnapped on gunpoint from defence colony when he was going to mosque for offering morning prayers and later was killed.
However, no solid headway has been made by the police investigation team in the high profile case of kidnapping and killing which has caused immense fear among the civilians and non-civilians alike.
