Arshad killed in target killing
Sanaullah dismissed the Kenyan police’s claim about the incident, saying, “Prima facie Arshad Sharif was murdered.” It was a targeted killing and not a case of mistaken identity. “If it is a murder, as prima facie it appears, then two brothers, Waqar Ahmed and Khurram Ahmed, living in Kenya would have known about it,” he said. Sharif was staying with two brothers of Pakistani origin, Waqar and Khurram, living in Kenya.
Demand for formation of judicial commission for fair investigation
The minister also said that the investigation is still incomplete and the team will also visit Dubai for further investigation. Meanwhile, Prime Minister Shahbaz Sharif on Tuesday wrote a letter to Chief Justice Omar Ata Bandiyal, demanding the formation of a judicial commission to conduct a fair and credible inquiry into the murder of Arshad Sharif, he said. He has appealed to the top judge to constitute a commission comprising all the available judges of the court.
Arshad Sharif went from Dubai to Kenya
The Prime Minister said that setting up of a commission is important for the rule of law and restoration of public confidence in government institutions. Shehbaz Sharif also assured the judge that his government would extend full support to the commission. Journalist Arshad Sharif had moved from Pakistan to Dubai and then to Kenya in August.
