The Khyber Pakhtunkhwa government decided to hold an in-camera briefing in the KP Assembly to discuss the murder case of provincial police officer Tahir Dawar. However, no date was announced for the briefing.
According to a local media report, during an assembly session chaired by Speaker Mushtaq Ahmad Ghani, an adjournment motion tabled by Awami National Party parliamentary leader Sardar Hussain Babak on the matter was admitted for discussion.
The ANP leader was quoted in the media report saying, “The martyred police officer Tahir Dawar was a Pakhtun citizen but the government did not take interest in probing his killing.”
He asked the government to “identify the people involved in the killing”.
Law minister Sultan Mohammad Khan said, “The government was ready to arrange an in-camera briefing for lawmakers on the matter.”
SP Dawar belonged to North Waziristan tribal district and was kidnapped in Islamabad on October 26.
He was found tortured to death in Afghanistan on November 13 that prompted his family and rights activists to call for an investigation.
