KARACHI – The case of martyred SSP Chaudhry Aslam has unfolded after three years of his death, making some shocking revelations.
According to initial reports from local media, a police official Kamran, who was his driver-cum-bodyguard, was involved in his murder.
Kamran revealed during investigation that he was himself a suicide bomber and commander of Naeem Bukhari Terror Ring.
Chaudhry Aslam was martyred in 2014 when his convoy was attacked using an Improvised Explosive Device (IED) planted in a vehicle on the Lyari Expressway.
According to then SP Muqadas Haider, “the explosion was so powerful that the vehicle’s wreckage was thrown some 20 to 30 feet away from the site of the explosion”.
Suspects being held by the CTD revealed that Kamran, who was at the time behind the wheel of Aslam’s pickup truck, was involved in the attack and was in fact, a member of the banned Sipah-e-Sahaba, which later reinvented itself as Ahle-Sunnat-Wal-Jamaat (AWSJ).
Kamran gave information regarding Aslam’s movement to his killers including Naeem Bukhari, Karachi chief of Lashkar-e-Jhangvi (LeJ). Suspects in the case in police custody revealed that police constable Kamran helped in conducting reconnaissance for the murder.
