Attack on police van: SHC summons IGP over flawed probe

Karachi: Sindh High Court (SHC) on Wednesday called the provincial chief and expressed anger over flawed investigation in the attack on police van.

A high court bench led by Chief Justice Ahmed Ali M Shaikh heard the petition filed by an accused, Gul Mohammad, seeking bail in the case.

“Seven policemen were killed in the incident but police failed to present any evidence,” said the chief justice, thinking what justice the police would do to a common man.

On Dec 18, the court gave post arrest bail to a suspicion killer and said to be associated with the Muttahida Qaumi Movement (MQM) and four other cases.

Kamran Madhuri bail was granted and four others against a surety bond of Rs0.5 million each and ordered the jail authorities to release them if they are not involved in any other case.

The applicant went to SHC after an anti-terrorism court turned down their bail petitions.

On August 19, 2011, at least seven policemen were gunned down while several others critically injured when armed men opened a fire on the police van in Goth area.
