KARACHI – Witnesses including mother and brother of the late Sulaiman Lashari identified the main accused in a court set up at the hospital where he is hospitalised.
O’ Levels student Sulaiman Lashari was gunned down at his house in Defence Housing Authority on May 8. He was allegedly killed by the main accused in the case, Salman Abro who is the son of Sakrand Police Training Centre SSP Ghulam Sarwar Abro.
The identification parade was held at the hospital as the police investigators had decided to move an application in court to conduct the parade of the key accused in the murder case inside the hospital where he is currently under treatment. During the parade today, the witnesses claimed that the SSP’s son broke into Sulaiman’s house and shot him dead.
Three days ago, four eyewitnesses including the victim’s mother, brother, brother-in-law and a servant, had successfully pinpointed the four accused police officials during the identification parade conducted by judicial magistrate in district South Mumtaz Ali Solangi.
An 18-year-old student of O’Levels was shot dead when he was studying in his balcony. The young man was allegedly targeted by the SSP’s son who came to Lashari’s house along with five police constables to settle an argument. The guards deployed at Lashari’s house had retaliated and the victim’s brother Zeeshan had also joined in after getting his weapon from his room.
An FIR No 235/2014 has been registered by the deceased’s brother at the Darakhshan police station against Salman Abro and the four police constables –Rasheed, Yasin, Maqbool and Imran – who accompanied him. The name of the deceased police constable has not been added in the FIR, which includes Sections 302, 324 and Anti-Terrorim Act Section seven.
The four surviving policemen are in police custody while Abro will be arrested when he recovers from his injuries. The police have also seized the Vigo and the weapons.
