KARACHI – The Sindh High Court’s directives are yet to be carried out, as police could not register an FIR against Federal Interior Minister Rehman Malik, MNA Nabeel Gabool and SP Crime Investigation Department Aslam Khan over the killing of Lyari gangster Saqib alias Shaif Baloch.

When contacted, SHO Chakiwara Aslam Gujjar said that the court directed the police to book MNA Nabeel Gabool and SP CID Aslam Khan. He said the court directed to register the FIR on the complaint of the deceased man’s maternal aunt Bilqies. Saqib was killed in an encounter on April 1 in Lyari by a CID team headed by SP Aslam Khan.

The SHO said the complaint was not willing to register the case without the nomination of the federal interior minister.
