Anwar is being investigated for his suspected involvement in the extrajudicial killing of Naqeebullah Mehsud in a staged encounter in Karachi.
Mehsud, a 27-year-old hailing from South Waziristan, was gunned down on January 13 in Shah Latif Town by alleged ‘encounter’ with a police team headed by Rao Anwar, however; preliminary probe suggest that Mehsud was killed in cold blood and had no terror links.
