Karachi: FIR of 2 policemen killing registered
KARACHI: The police registered an FIR on Sunday in connection with the killing of two jail officials in Gulshan-i-Iqbal late on Saturday night. Assistant superintendent of the Juvenile Jail Pir Masood and deputy superintendent of the Landhi Jail (also known as Malir jail) Abdul Raziq Abbasi were gunned down by unknown assailants near Nipa. Jail DIG Nusrat Mangan confirmed the identities of the victims. Both men had succumbed to their wounds during treatment at Jinnah Postgraduate Medical Centre. On Sunday, the police registered an FIR (743/2012) at Gulshan-i-Iqbal police station under Section 302 of the Pakistan Penal Code on a complaint of deputy superintendent Mohammad Arshad against unidentified men. The funeral prayers for Pir Masood were offered at the Central Jail Karachi, attended by the provincial law minister and senior jail officer. Afterwards, the body was sent to his hometown, Shikarpur, for burial.
Earlier in the day the body of Abdul Raziq Abbasi was also sent to Sehwan for burial.
Expressing his ignorance about the banned Tehreek-i-Taliban Pakistan claim of responsibility for the killings, DIG Mangan said it did not make sense as there was no TTP militant either in the juvenile jail or the Landhi jail.
