KARACHI: Three more policemen have been detained for interrogation in the murder case of Naqeebullah Mehsud, who was gunned down with three other persons in an alleged staged encounter in Shah Latif Town off National Highway on Jan 13.
Police sources told IPP that the policemen were detained in the Malir area.
They, however, added that the held policemen were not members of former Malir SP Rao Anwar’s ‘core team’.
“The three detained policemen were basically witnesses as they were involved in one way or another in transferring Naqee Bullah Mehsud from one place to another, etc,” said a police source.
Earlier, six policemen had been arrested over charges of their involvement in the murder.
They had allegedly detained Naqeebullah and two other persons at a restaurant in the Sohrab Goth area. Two of them were later released who identified the six accused policemen as being involved in their abduction.
They have been remanded in police custody for interrogation.
