QUETTA - Balochistan Police Department Wednesday dismissed two former officials the Airport Police for their involvement in Kharotabad tragedy, on the recommendation of the inquiry tribunal. Former Station House Officer (SHO) Fazalur Rehman and Assistant Sub-Inspector (ASI) Raza Khan were dismissed from their service over negligent behaviour in the tragic killing of foreigners after responsibility was fixed in departmental proceedings, the sources said. Police department was given recommendations few months back for the dismissal of the accused SHO and ASI, sources said, adding that Quetta CCPO Ahsan Mehboob on Monday ordered for their dismissal. Five Russian and Tajik nationals, including three women, were brutally killed on May 17 earlier this year in Kharotabad, in the outskirts of Quetta, when police and Frontier Corps (FC) personnel opened indiscriminate fire on them presuming them to be suicide bombers. An enquiry tribunal had fixed responsibility and recommended action against certain security officials. Immense pressure after media aired the footage, showing Frontier Corps and police using arbitrary and disproportionate force on foreigners, had led Balochistan chief minister to announce formation of a judicial tribunal under a Balochistan High Court judge to probe into the killings. The tribunal concluded its report on June 28 by saying that Lt-Col Faisal Shehzad of FC and former Quetta CCPO Dawood Junejo demonstrated incompetence in handling the situation while the SHO and the ASI of the jurisdiction concerned were held mainly responsible for the incident. Former Quetta CCPO Dawood Junejo was first made OSD and later on he was sent on retirement after few days of incident instead of taking any action against him. Later, a committee on the directives of Balochistan IGP Rao Ameen Hashim was formed to implement the recommendations of judicial tribunal which completed its report and submitted it to IGP. The sources also said Balochistan IGP has sent a letter to the federal government for action against the then Quetta CCPO Daud Junejo. However, no action has been taken against the FC Lt-Col Faisal Shehzad so far.
